|Jacob David Chudacoff and Eli
Chudacoff were either first cousins or
second cousins (two different accounts).
|All Chudacoffs with this
spelling should be related, although, some
distantly. All Chudacoffs came from the same area of what was then the
Chernigov region of Russia. Here in the 21st Century the region can
mostly be found in the Bryansk Oblast of Russia.
|I believe we can talk about 3
major branches of Chudacoffs in the
United States. Two branches are closely related and the third branch
must be related, although a direct connection has not been established.
There are also a smattering of Chudacoffs who came to the US with
spelling variants that are likely to also be related, although direct
connections have not been made yet.
