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
Name (Given names only) Contains Mary
Name (Surname Only) Contains Gassaway
Name (Given Name Only) Contains Mary

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