    Thank you. What would you suggest? Will a "-" work?
    I use a square bracket e.g. SMITH [JONES]

      As for the person who has had a sex change, entering the event becomes problematic (regardless of the app you are using). My personal preference would be to record the person's birth name and sex as part of the "name of record" and enter the second name in the AKA fact field with extensive note explanations attached......
      If you can, I would advise to consider desires of the person who did the change with regard to the information. Some are very open about this; some are secretive. Just saying!
