My name is Anne Kiely, from Tasmania, Australia and I am having some difficulty working out how to record the source material accurately into the Wikitree format.  I would appreciate any help.   Thanks.

Michael Kiely/Kailey/Kelly and others was the father of nine children with the surnames of the birth certificates using all these spellings.   How do I indicate the original spelling without the profile saying the children are 1/2 siblings rather than full siblings.   The last child born to Catherine O'Brien, Michael's wife was James Cameron and he is the only 1/2 sibling.  Catherine married again after Michael's death.

The father (Michael Kiely) should have only one profile. All of his names can be associated with that same profile. His LNAB should be the name on the birth certificate or baptism record (if available).  The other spellings can be listed on Other Last Names (separated by commas), and you can put one name in the Current Last Name field (normally the one on his gravestone or death certificate).

That one profile should be connected to each child as that child's father. His children may have different last names at birth, but they will all show up in WikiTree as full siblings.
