I'm relatively new to this, but I occasionally run into hints where the lineage is said to change surnames. As where an ancestor Peter Heinrich Bauman is said to have parents Herr Lehman (father) and Verena Pine (mother). I suppose such things happened for several reasons, but I'm not inclined to accept such things without documentation. I've found members reluctant to respond and explain such name shifts. In the example I cite here the plausibility is strained even further with the mother's alleged surname, since "Pine" is not a German surname. Do people just make stuff up and post it?
