How does one add spelling variants to the name list at the top?  I tried looking in the forums but did not see how to update/adjust.  Looking at the name Gremminger,  I do not see see Kriminger, Griminger or Crimminger in the list but have seen this spelling used at times.

 

KRIMMINGER (177)GROENINGER (55) GRENINGER (36) GRONINGER (19) GREENINGER (10)GRIMMINGER (13) GRUNINGER (4) GRANINGER (3) GREMINGER (6) CRIMINGER (2).

The "Other Last Names:" field in the profile section is available for adding "variants."

I also like to type them into "Biography" sections as a "Note:" or "Surname Name Variations :", along with reference sources when possible
