Hi,

I am not sure as to why it happens, but the alphabetical listing of surnames does not seem to be stricly alphabetical. See following example:

Johanna Maria van der Walt ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Aletta (Van Vrede) van der Walt ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Alida (Kruger) van der Walt ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Maria (van der Walt) Fourie ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Maria (Van Der Walt) Pretorius ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Maria van der Walt ancestorsFind Relationship

Johanna Elizabeth (Van Der Walt) Van Dyk ancestorsFind Relationship

 

Regards,

Wynand

Wynand,

They are all listed under the surname "Van Der Walt" , even though some show a maiden name or a married name after the surname.

Hi,

Thank you for the response. The challenge that I have is that the listing does not alphabetize according to second name. Some of the lists that I work with contain more than 30 profiles, each with the same surname as well as same first name. Having the names clustered accroding to middle name will be of great help.

Regards,

Wynand
