Topics I've Started

Born before marriage

31 August 2006 - 04:34 PM

Hi all,

I have a mother and a daughter the father of whom is unknown. I have entered the surname of the mother as that of the daughter as given on the birth certificate. After the mothers marriage the daugter started using the married surname. How can I enter this in Roots Magic so that the correct names show before and after the marriage of her mother. The current situation is that the surname entered for the daughter is showing all the way through to her marriage and I cannot see the best way to display this information correctly. At her own marriage the surname of her step father is given.
