My grandfather, Raymond Linus Aydt, immigrated from Alsace with his family, when he was a child, ca 1900.They came to Hamilton County, Il, where many Aydt's had immigrated in the 1830's and 40's.
I have never seen it as Aid.How do you pronounance it? I have always pronounanced it as I'd, rhymes with tide, or I'd't, rhymes height.Is Aid the americanized version?
If you would like more info, please let me know.
