Someone with whom I shared my database just wrote about a sex change. She has legally and physically become he. How do I indicate this in Reunion, aside from a note about a change in name and sex? What sex should the card be? This comes sort of out of left field and I had never considered such a thing before. I am completely befuddled as to how to handle this in the database.

Any suggestions would be very welcome!

Ask the "someone" what he would prefer.

In terms of the card personally I'd stick to the convention of a woman's last name--the cards in my file always show the birth name, so I would do the same for sex; then put a note or event for the change (as you would for a name change).

I think I would agree with Tom. If he got married after the change, then you should know that Reunion will allow someone in a spouse slot who is of the "wrong" gender.
