Not your average name change

Posted: 3 Jan 2008 8:45PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: WRIGHT, MACCHIA
My great grandmother Elizabeth Macchia voluntarily changed her last name (to Wright) after her husband died in Manhattan, NYC circa 1935. She ran a bar & grill with documentation & also had passports in her new name. Do you know what would have been the protocol for changing one's name at this time? Would she have registered this somewhere, or had a court proceeding, or hired a lawyer??? Help!
