My ggg grandfather first appears in census records as Mahrake. His marriage is recorded as Malvake. The next I found was a census as McVickers. His children show up as Malvake, McVake, McVick, McVickers. His death was recorded as "McVake or McVickers. My grandmother has the middle name of McVaik. I found one ancestor - McVicker or McGregor!! Anyone else have these problems climbing the family tree?
