Hello everyone! Hope you guys are doing well?! If I could ask a HUGE favor of everyone that has access to our Family Tree . . . . if everyone could PLEASE start putting the ladies MAIDEN name's either after their middle name, if you're adding their middle name OR in parentheses after their married name!!!!!!!! EXAMPLE: Melissa Dawn Parks Burleson OR Melissa Dawn Burleson (Parks)

Thank you guys so much!!!!!!!!!!

Why do feel this is better than to have Maiden Name put in the Birth Name Field?

Did you know you can adjust your own view of maiden names?

My account
Name preferences
Set your birth name display preferences

If you enter data any other way than the fields geni has provided, you take away everyone's ability to view in the way that suits them best.

I have a question, when adding a female to tree and then adding her husband it it puts the males last name and then the wives maiden name for surname. Why?
