suggestion for dealing with space in last name

09 August 2017 - 08:19 AM

My mother's maiden name is "Van Nostrand" and I just realized that this is causing problems for the templates.  It wants to write the surname as just "Nostrand" and count the "Van" as part of the first name.  Is it possible with the template language to parse the field up to a comma and use that as the surname?  I apologize, I couldn't find an answer when I searched and am new to rootsmagic.  Any help or resources to get me going in the correct direction would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Suggestions for documenting person not on census

03 August 2017 - 12:59 PM

I am looking for suggestions on how to anyone in the past has documented an individual being missed on a census.  My great great grandfather's house address is not on any census records in 1940.  Should I add a census event and a residence event?  Help would be appreciated.  Thank you.
