When entering children, I had one child with the wrong surname. After watching what was happening I noticed that when I add a child to a mother, it gives the child the mother's surname rather than thge father's, even when the father is checked. When that happened, I went in and changed the child's birth name to the father's, buyt then it added the mother's to the also field. When I deleted that is said the alternate name was anonymous so I had to actually add the father's name as the current name.
I wanted to just delete the child and start over, but couldn't find a way to do that. Surely I'm overlooking something obvious.
Now I know. NEVER add a child from the mother witrhout checking the birth surname. Better, ALWAYS add a child from the father. LOL.
