Married names
« on: April 11, 2022, 08:40:29 »

could you please advise me how to handle married names?
I know that by Aries editor I can add several names. But which should be default? And do I realy need for each weding quirte complicated way create a new name?
I would expect some easy way how to cover second name change after weding.

Thank you very much.

As far as I know, even you use a "wedding name", your name on your id paper stays your birth name.
So, you can define a usage name (wedding name, pen name or other aliases).
The editor will show the first tag NAME you will define.

You can change the order with the GEDCOM Editor.
Just drag and drop tags from one place to another.
