Multiple Student Entries?
Aug 21, 2013, 04:47:42 pm

I am currently researching Hersz Gotwilen and I was curious to know if there is a possibility for one student to have entered their name in the book under multiple schools?

My research shows that there were no students with "Gotwilen" as a last name, however I did find what I believe to be a match under an alternate spelling as "Gutwilen", Hersz Herman. My student attended School #20A. The second entry I discovered during cross reference of student listing is H. Gutwilen, however this student attended School # 23.

I wanted to find out if a student would/could have signed under two separate schools yet be the same individual?

We have yet to find any evidence that someone signed a name twice in the album. It's possible that this happened, and it's also possible that there was a database entry error that led to a name being listed twice. Either way, try expanding your search--maybe there's another candidate out there who may have signed either name.
