Last name


My family story begins with my middle name, Eli it  came from my great grandfather he was born in Russia and had a son my grandpa they fled Russia around the time WWII started and left to japan but they weren't safe there they took a long journey to get to America and when they finally did they landed at New York and from there they traveled to San Francisco where they eventually settled down in a house in the city. I’ll also be talking about my last name, Burhorn my last name came from my great grandfather on my dads side of the family my dad grandpa came from Germany to escape the Prussian war after that he came to America and settled down in Missouri and stayed there until my father came to California the reason I chose to do my middle and last name is because both my grandfather have passed and this is my family history so I want to keep it a live and have this be a memorial for them so they can be remembered.
