Do you have a question or comment about the site?

Advice needed about a man who took a new identity; official records show new name.

This case is highly unusual, and I am wondering which way is the best way to record the newer (but more factual) information.
"George Marshe" (https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7571885) is in fact Frank Myburgh, and place of birth was Cape Town, not Essex, as per his war records.

It's all fully explained in this entry: https://www.geni.com/people/Francis-Gerhard-Myburgh-a-k-a-George-Marshe/6000000039901456692

I would appreciate some ideas on how best to record the new facts; I am assuming that the main record has to remain as George Marshe because that's how he was known during WW1 (and for some time before that).

Can anyone who responds to this also message me, please? I don't think I got notified last time I posted a question here.
