Jacomyntje (Klock) Unknown-318906 does not display (unknown) as her last name at birth on the Formerly last name line. Can this be corrected?

Richard, I think it's a matter of interpretation.

At no time was her last name (either at birth or any other time) Unknown. It's just that her last name at birth (LNAB) is currently not known, so she is identified as an unknown for the convenience of the WikiTree database.

Even so, Unknown is used as a proxy for her actual LNAB and appears wherever that field is normally displayed.

Richard it appears as: Jacomyntie Klock formerly [surname unknown] witch shows LNAB is Unknown :) at the top of the profile page it shows: LNAB is Unknown / or profile link would be : Unknown-318906 & if you click this profile link to it that I made... it takes you to the same profile :) Unknown-318906
