legal changed names - general

Trudy Barch

Our ancestors that immigrated to America, 1900-1920, came with their European name.   The spouse had the European spelling of the name as well as the children.   When husband/father naturalized and legally changed his name…  1) did his wife and children automatically became naturalized citizens?  2) did the wife and children’s spelling of the name legally change at that time also?  3) The American born children - would they use the European spellings until dad naturalized?   

Thank you,   Trudy Barch (FL)
