I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

The two surnames are probably taken from two different ancestors, and as I understand, you don't know much about this Auerbach family.

Although the book mentions a Rabbi Yakov Charif ABD Leshnov and a Rabbi Chaim Yakov Halevi Charif ABD Polnoe, there is no mention of a "R' Yakov Yitzas Halevi the son of Tzvi Halevi".

I think it would be worthwhile for you to get a copy of this book which concentrates on the lineage of the family with its more than 700 ancestors directly linked to Dovid Hamelech. This hard-cover books contains 200 pages of our family genealogy and is replete with charts, yahrtzeits and a concise easy to follow index.
