Post subject: Variations in Polish Surnames
My ancestor's surname is found in various records as "Lula" and "Lulla". I'm wondering if there would be circumstances, for whatever reason, where some variation such as "Lulkowski" might have been ascribed by whomever recorded the event?
I have a record where the first names, relative ages, date of event, and location all makes sense, but the spelling of the surname is quite different.
I have another ancestor line of the name Duczak, and have found variations ranging from Dudek to Dudkowski.
Could the same thing be happening with "Lula"?
Thank you for any insight and thoughts on the subject.
