The way that I have always handled it is by the generation to change their name. For the generation that changed their name from the old Russian name to the new U.S. name, I first put the new name down and then in parentheses I put the old Russian name. For the generation before that I would just put the old Russian name. For the generation after that I would just put the new name.      Just the way I handle it.
