My wife's first and middle names were legally changed after receiving her citizenship. How do I change the information on here family cards and not affect the other relationships?

Olosch,

Reunion has a unique database key for each individual. You won't break the database if you change her name on the family card. On the other hand, you may be best served by adding the new name as an AKA (a fact type).

I hope this helps.

e.g. Keep the birth name as the main name on the family card. If one does anything else, one will slowly accumulate craziness in tracking relatives. :)
