In Topic: Spouses with different surnames

13 January 2014 - 06:27 PM

I'm still learning, so please pardon my ignorance.... I now see that on the calendar you can choose married or maiden names for all -- but that still doesn't make the 'married' name of my daughter-in-law come up as the hyphenation of her maiden and husband's surname. I've entered the hyphenation as an 'alternate name' fact. The problem is that for many women today, their 'married' name is their 'maiden' name. So if I were to generate a calendar, selecting the married name option, many women would have the wrong name. I wish there were a toggle switch that would allow you to "retain maiden name when married." If I entered that when I was given the family information by relatives, RootsMagic would remember it, and I wouldn't have to. Thanks for your responses!
