I would use whichever each branch uses….

 

I have numerous last names on my tree that various branches use different permutations….on the older generations , like those who never came to America, I use what was known as the original last name and then used whatever permutation each branch decided to use.

If the family arriving in the US used Kahn, but the family arriving in Israel used Kan, what name should I use?

 

Thank you.
