About the Katznelson surname

I have read where all Katznelson's are related, even though there are variations on the name: Katznelson, Katznelson, Katzenelson, Katsenelson, etc. If true, we are therefore related to Berl Katznelson, one of the founders of the State of Israeli and of the Israeli Labour Party.

At least one, Henry, shortened his family name to Nelson, and therefore all of his descendants were named Nelson. Perhaps others changed their name or had their name changed by immigration officials when they immigrated to the US.
