Barbara, you should be able to click the edit box on the profile, once in the edit mode, scroll down to the last name at birth box, and click edit last name at birth. Another edit screen will open, change the last name to from what you have it now to unknown, and leave a short explanation in the note section as to why the change was made. Click save to save the work. Hope this helps a little!
