maiden names

I liked the dynastree look more. It was much more convenient to manage.

The question is WHY the family name for female members AUTOMATICALLY switches to husband's name? Some female partners do not change their names.

Hi if you go to settings >> Genealogy >> you will see this:

Names of Married Woman

Select how to display last names of married women in the family site.
Married name (born Maiden name)
Maiden name (Married name)
Married name
Maiden name
 
 If no specific married name is provided, use husband's last name for the wife

Thanks I didnt know that, found it anoying and confusing to use the married names for the ladies in a family tree.     I wouldn't even use the married name if I didnt know  the maiden name.   This makes it clear that the maiden name is not known.
