Family rumor has it that when coming to America from Germany, some changed the spelling to match the pronunciation(HELVIG), and some changed the pronunciation to match the spelling(HELWIG). Please let me know any info on connecting the two names. We emigrated from Busurda, Germany(it may be Poland now) in the 1880's.
