About the Wagner surname

This particular branch of the Wagner surname was created at Ellis Island in 1902 when the Vigodner (sp?) family came through, escaping a Pogram in Russia. The family story goes that the intake officer could not spell our family name and so changed it to the simpler form of Wagner.
