Re: Why Various Spellings of A Family Name #names

My mother's maiden name was TUROFF, but her father was TUROF. Both lived in Brooklyn. My grandfather lived 52 years after he came to the US so there was plenty of time to make adjustments if either thought it was necessary.

Go figure... Any attempt at explaining it would be pure speculation.
