My g-g-g'father's sister was named Jetta according to her birth
certificate, but she is enumerated in the 1880 census as Ida. I was
wondering if possibly the census taker misunderstood Jetta as "Ida" or if
Ida was a "nickname" of sorts. I have no idea how Jetta is pronounced.

Thanks,

Lisa,

Jetta is pronounced as [yeh tah] and Ida is pronounced as [ee dah]
