Unofficial Name Change

Postby DianeH » Wed May 30, 2012 2:16 pm

I have my grandfather's birth certificate from Italy, last name ******a. His naturalization papers, death certificate, my father's papers (except for baptismal certificate) and mine all are all spelled ******o. Somewhere along the line, our last name was changed, most likely unofficially. I read on this site that some people from areas with a Greek population would change their surname for male/female, and this may be the case, as he was from Matera in the Basilicata. Has anyone gone through the process with a similar problem? I have a feeling that this is a major problem. Thanks.
