I have been researching the Duda family connection to Poland. The link is via my grandfather Josef Duda born in or around Radom in 1894. His wife was a Magdziarz born in Lodz in 1896. I would like to go further in the chain with either parents and beyond or siblings of either person. I do know that they moved to Krien, Germany in or around 1919/20. Much appreciated if anyone could assist.
I have recently (2018) discovered that my family DUDA surname was used from 1929-1934 onward. The previous surnames found on the birth registrations between 1921 - 1926, were Duschinsky, Dudzinski and Dudschinsky. There is a notation on each of the birth registrations dated June 1938, stating that the family name was DUDA and not as stated when the births were registered.
I have not been able to find the reason for this change. Can someone throw some light on this change?
