Re: Name changed in London before coming to US, searching for original name #names

Before WW1 name changes were informal. Use of name changes by Deed Poll started to come in during WW1 (e.g. my Gutenberg's of Sheffield became Graham in 1915). This was not a legal requirement for all until about the 1920s.  So a name change in 1905 may be too early to be official.
