I've been doing genealogy for years but have just recently started using RootsMagic. I did a search around the forums and came up blank for my biggest issue, though I imagine it's been asked before.
Is there a way to add an alternate spelling of a Surname to a Family or group of people instead of one at a time to each person? If I attempt to add my own custom fact, it of course wants to associate the spelling with spouses as well. As anyone with family that has immigrated to different countries (which is virtually everyone) you find there are times where the Surname changes when they immigrate, and even fluidly changes after settling into a country. For example, I have relatives with the last name of Konknoren which was was changed to Kruschke, which sometimes was spelled as Kruichke and other times spelled as Kruske. Instead of going through each member of the family and adding four alternate names, is there a better or easier way of doing this? As I'm a software developer and DBA I can easily go into the SQLite database and run a query but I'd rather not do that. Also, if I add additional people say a month from now, I may forget that I need to add four alternate Surnames for that person as well.
