I have a couple of questions regarding surname changed.
My father was born William John Bujarski, and this is how is birth was registered. When he was bout 8, his father, John Francis Bujarski, legally changed the family surname to Beirs (I have the court documents).
So, my questions:
1. When you are putting this information in your computer software, would you record them as they were born, then put in the name change documentations later?
2. And, does the fact that my grandFATHER changed his name automatically mean that my grandMOTHER and my father's name were automatically changed? I don't have any records of their going through court to get this changed.
