About Our Family Research

I'm searching for ancestors on my fathers side of the family.Great grandparents have the last name of La Mont.Somewheres between my great-grandfather&my grandfather the spelling was changedMy great=grandparents names were"John& Bessie La MONT. My grandparents are "John& Elsie La Ment.I also know by the way the name was pronounced it's french.I would like to see how far back I can trace these roots.I would like to see why the name was changed.I've heard several different stories.My grandfather is still living,but,when I asked him he told me his father& uncle had a fight,then his father joined the military under the name La Ment,when he got out he wanted to change it back and the government wouldn't let him.The other story I heard is when my grandfather joined the military,the government started signing his checks that way and he never told them different.I guess I'm just curious to learn who Ireally am.
