Sally, the Silberman/Silverman difference was in the same household, and the odd one out was still legally a minor.
As for spelling, what with the transition from Cyrillic to Roman (and now, to Hebrew) alphabets, my surname has been spelled various ways, including Ryesky, Raisky, Reisky, etc. (Just as well, there were enough Communist Party apparatchiks (and nomenklaturaniks) who would have caused problems with my security clearance and my dad's if the family connection had been made).
