Hi, I am new to this. My Question is, with Wifes names do you enter them with their Maiden names or do you enter them and include (NEE) after is. WHich is accepted practice.

Hi Peter,

Yes when entering your wife's name you enter her maiden name. (See:Name Field Guidelines ) Than you can use your surname as there current last name.

Welcome to wikitree! If you have any questions feel free to ask here in the g2g section.

Have a great day

We don't use "nee" on Wikitree. You'll enter the women's names as their maiden name (we call it the LNAB: Last Name At Birth). There are other fields for married surnames, and any other variations.
