JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Surname - YUDLEVITZ in California #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>

One of the problems of searching by surnames is that they could be
spelled in so many ways and then transcribed (or misread) in many
other ways,.
For example, a search for YUD** in the 1920 census for California
yields the followiing:
Herman YUDBNITZ b 1855 in Poland
Geroge YUDLEWITZ b 1871 in Russia
Belle YUDLOWITZ b 1896 in Russia.

Try writing YUDLEVITZ in script form and you will see that it may
well be transcribed as YUD -B (for the L and E) -N (for the V or W) -

Searching the California Death index also yields many possible
matches and often provides the mother's maiden name (if it was given.)

My challenge now is to find Yane YUDLEVITZ' descendants. I know in the US the
family first lived in New Jersey, but relocated early on in the 1900s to the Los
Angeles area.

Other names of related family members include Etta GORE (the name FORER is also
listed as her mother's maiden name). She was born in 1898 and died in Los Angeles
in 1985. Also Edith YUDLEVITZ, born 1900 or 1901, died in San Bernardino in 1970.
Irving (Isidore) YUDLEVITZ born 1905, died in Los Angeles in 1987. Also Sophia
born 1902.
