Can you fix it? Is there likely to be a maintenance release before version 8 comes out?

Right, Tom, I finally noticed that and wound up with "[person:given:surname]<, [person:suffix],> died . . ."

 

Thanks. It's nice to be around people who keep one to the straight and narrow.

In eastern Europe, before the early nineteenth century, most Jewish families had no surnames. It was Aaron, son of David, son of Benjamin, etc. Sometime around 1810 or 1815 the Tsar issued a ukase which required that everyone have names on the western pattern with which we are familiar today. It's said that the order was issued to ease the administration of the tax laws and the military draft.

 

There are very few records -- except perhaps for the most notable rabbinic families -- before the turn of the nineteenth century. The earliest direct ancestor I've been able to find was born in 1797, but his birth year is derived from his death certificate from 1853.

Thanks so much, Tom. I had both DUP & DUP-journal. They're gone now and I'm up and running.
