in first example "La maison des Jackson est sur la gauche." can we use" de jackson" instead of "des jackson"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Expressing possession with 'de'"

Bonjour Yashika !
Both sentences are correct, but mean very different things :)
La maison des Jackson = the Jacksons' / the Jackson family's house
La maison de Jackson = Jackson's house (one person)
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
Thanks a lot.
You are best :*
