Seems to be a huge difference if she did change her name.

You have any more details you are able to give us? Someone might be able to help sort it out.

My mother called herself Gay and used that name her complete adult life, she was born Elsie. It made finding her very painful, it was not done officially just decided she did not like her name so changed it.
