How do you record surnames change spelling

Comment by Sue Burk on March 26, 2016 at 3:37pm

Some of us don't do Facebook.  I wish the forum was more active.

Comment by Lewis Hartswick on March 26, 2016 at 3:34pm

I guess this forum is dead. A year and a half since a post. I'm going to delete the link . If anyone ever sees this go to facebook for a going concern.

I have encountered much the same problem with several people. I just enter the parents on the marriage screen with the note that they never married. Often, the children were never adopted by later step parents, but the surname does not change with additional spouses of the custodial parent.

Comment by Sandra Chester on August 15, 2014 at 8:13am

I have the almost the same situation in my tree. Several of my cousins children have had children out of wedlock with different partners, none of whom they have actually married and I am always at a loss how to record the children and the relationship of their parents. Any other people besides Margi and I dealing with similar problems.

Comment by Margi Peoples on August 15, 2014 at 8:05am

I would still be related to her children. They would be my half ancestors (is there such a thing). What I found interesting was that her son was blind as my son is. Another thing is that in Ancestry I found someone's family tree that had her daughter as there daughter. I found the baptism certifcate saying that my ancestor was the mother. How do you deal with that?

Thanks for all the help.

 

Comment by Carolyn Winterburn on August 15, 2014 at 3:10am

Surely if the Mother is on the family tree line then any of her children, even with different unknown fathers, would still be family?

And aren't we told to record everything significant.

Comment by Lewis Hartswick on August 14, 2014 at 6:43am

I'd Make her "spouse" with the note "did not marry" and the child as theirs. Somewhere note the child was "adopted" by the second spouse. the other children I'd ignore as they are not part of your tree.   ...lew...

The more that I work with Legacy, the more questions that I have. One of my ancestors was going to marry someone but he died before she could. Would you still put him under spouse. They did have a son, but her second husband has him as his son. She also had 4 kids out of wedlock where would I place them.

Thank you for your help.
