Does anyone use the married name field? I am trying to go back through a database of about 26,000 individuals and fill in the Married Name field for females (only including their married surname).

I figured this could be handy when you have a large database and have info on a (i.e.) Mary Gassaway and want to compare the info against all Mary Gassaways in your database.

You can then use the filter (in the case of the above):
(
Married name matches Gassaway
AND
Name (Given names only) Contains Mary
)
OR
(
Name (Surname Only) Contains Gassaway
AND
Name (Given Name Only) Contains Mary
)

I'd be interested in hearing from others that use the Married Name field.
