I am researching my connection to the surname May and have come across a dilemma I haven't met with up until now. I'd appreciate very much any input in respects to the standard practice in genealogy. Abigail May married Amos Bronson Alcox, but Bronson changes his surname to Alcott. When I am recording his line, should I document his name as the one he was born with, or the one he adopted? Thanks for any ideas anyone has to share!
