I am sorry Liz. Our daughter just had a baby so we have been occupied. As for the change in LNAB, before we make the change, the question of when and why the Lunsford men began using Traweek has never been answered. This is my wife's family. I think we should do more research before changing the name.

Jack / Scott - The G2G post (see previous comment) stated my intention of changing the Last Name at Birth from Traweek to Lunsford. I haven't heard any objections from y'all or anyone else, so I intend to proceed tomorrow.

Cheers, Liz
