Surname Saturday: Dudelsack or Dudelczak

I continue with the Surname Saturday blogging theme -  
Discuss a surname and mention its origins, its geographical location(s) and how it fits into your genealogy research.
Dudelsack / Dudelczak


The origin of the surname is a bit unclear.  There is a German bagpipe called a Dudelsack.  However, the word 'Dudel' is a diminutive for "David" in Yiddish, so there's a strong possibility the surname is patronymic in origin.  Spelling of the surname varies.

Three Dudelsack siblings immigrated to America in the late 1800s.  My great great grandfather Selig, a brother Yidel, and a sister, Toba.  Toba had married Aaron Oberman prior to immigration.  Selig and Yidel both changed their surnames upon arriving in America.  Yidel Americanized his given name to Julius, and Toba went with Tillie.  Family lore says there were four siblings who remained in Poland. Nothing beyond their names are known.

The numbering below follows the d'Aboville system.  I've emboldened my direct ancestors. It's currently unclear what town in Poland/Russia the family originated.  The three families started in America in St. Louis.  Most of the Odelsons moved to Chicago.
