re: #95 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

My granddad (or the guys on Ellis Island) changed the spelling of the family name, replacing the cz in the original with a ch, like in “church”

Problem came when I returned to Germany where the ch has a guttural pronounciation (like Channukah). I am used to just spelling it out as Germans never get it right.

I even recall a woman saying “How do you expect me to spell it when you don’t pronounce it correctly?”

You can spell your name smith and pronounce it “jenofsky” if you want

They’re all silent, never mind
