For people who emigrate and have changed their name from the old Russian name to a USA name I list the original name in parentheses and then the new name. If that person's children are born after the name change I list only the new name.  In some cases where members of the same family spell the new name differently I list it as they spell it, e.g., Marrin, Marin, Maron.
