I have noticed that surnames with an ' in the name do not appear in the surnames detail. So at the first level of surnames, d'Anjou appears saying there are 32 given names. But when selected the surname page is blank.

I think the apostrophe does cause problems for many programs. I have Reunion on my Mac and I notice that in its app for iPad it deletes the apostrophe in the surnames list, though not in the detail for an individual.

Also I have the same problem with Ancestry online hints, and they cannot resolve it as yet.

I still believe RootsMagic 7 is the best software there is, it is my master database, through bootcamp. I should add that the desktop version does not have any of the above problems.
