think I have my account name wrong. I am listed as Rose Starks , that is my maiden name. My married current name is Rose Gardner. Should I be listed as that name?  I am researching the Starks name, my maiden name.

How do I change name on the profile?

If you want, you can add your married name of "Gardner" in the Current last name slot. Your maiden name needs to stay at LNAB or "Last Name at Birth". When and if you decide to do that, your name will show as Rose (Starks) Gardner. You do not have to add the ( ); they are automatically added when you have both maiden name and current or married name on your profile. The search engines will still pick you up as Starks.

Go to your profile. Click edit and add Gardner as your Current last name. Make sure you go down and hit save.
