Mystery Monday - Two Z's or Not two Z's -Drezdon or Drezdzon
Two Z's or not two Z's - that is the question. My mother-in-law swears her maiden name has always been spelled Drezdon. I have been tracing her line back and searching for any and all for clues. Starting with her - last name spelled Drezdon on her birth certificate. Obituary for her father George spelled Drezdon. George's birth certificate Drezdzon - father's name on the same certificate spelled Josef Drzdzon. George's death certificate Drezdon. George's father- Joseph - birth record spelled Drezdzon. Joseph's World War I draft registration card Drezdzon; old man draft Drezdon. Census records for Joseph 1910 and 1920 - Drezdzon. Census records for John - 1910 -Drezdzon. St. Adalbert Cemetery in Milwaukee lists Joseph and John with the last name of Drezdon. I am thinking that my next search should be on John Drezdzon or Drezdon to locate his naturalization records. I should also track down the church the families attended, perhaps they can shed some light on the case of the double z's.
