One of my research lines is the PLEETH family, as represented by my great grandmother, Selina PAVLOVE (nee PLEETH) (1888 – TBD) and Evelyn SHACK (nee PLEETH) (1908 – 2006). According to posts on the PLACHTA surname message board, originally the family name was PLACHTA. When the family moved from Lodz, Poland, they took the anglicized names of PLEETH or PLICHT. When the PLICHT branch realized that PLICHT was a really lousy attempt to anglicize the name, they changed it to PLIGHT.
