Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

I wonder if Bercovitz and Berkovitz derive >from the same name,
Bercovici or are completely different names.
All of these names could be interchangeable - certainly in previous
generations, exact spelling of a surname was not very important.

I have found various documents for my own family spelled
Davidovics, Davidovici, Davidovits, Davidovitz, Davidson, Davis and
other variations.
