Heh heh, Gaile, I was defenestrated so many times I quite Answering and just went to Commenting. The Comment, anyone can ignore it, it's ONLY a Comment, like an IMO is. But they can't take my gold crown away when it's a Comment.
I really enjoyed this discussion of dual surnames and how to cope with entering them into the LNAB and CLN -- it reminded me (somewhat) of the one on the dual first names which is the one that brought to my attention this Issue about dual names in a field.
Makes me wonder about those hyphenated location names and location names which Burton on Riles-Hickington, (somewhere in mythical Great Britain) -- does Computer balk at those?
Eventually, I am convinced the software will be adjusted. Especially since WT wants to be more Global
I looked at the page SJ Baty posted for naming conventions and it was pretty well organized and clearly stated -- I really had not given that much thought to dual surnames before today -- don't think I've had to deal with any (yet - and hopefully never)
