In creating a page for Courtland Henry McCollum-1444 who in later life became Henry Mack Courtland, I couldn't find the pull down menu to be able to enter both names so they make sense. HELP!

It looks like he actually changed his name - born McCollum, died Courtland - so McCollum should be in the LNAB field, Courtland in the “Current last name field.”   I would put “Henry” as preferred name since that’s what he used at his death.  Nothing needs to go in the “Other last names” and “Henry Mack” can go as a nickname to help people identify him.
