If the change of name was made formally and officially, then it was probably done in a county court.  I know of a couple of instances where petitions were filed with the county court and the court granted the petitions.

Hi List,

Now that more of my ancestors records have just become available on Ancestry
Via church records Pennsylvania my last name is spelled in so many ways
Dobberstein, Von Dobberstein or just plain old Doberstein. When my ancestors
came to America their names were changed to make them more American but is
there any place I can go to, to find those records of the name change..
