TWO Problems
1. Sometimes I can't find a person when I search (Individual List), even though I know that they are in my file. The only way that i can locate them is by searching their father or mother's name. This may be related to problem 2.

2. A few (maybe more) of my names are listed, in an Individual List search, by their middle names, and not by their surnames. Even if I re-enter the names this is how they show up. They do not show under a search under surname. In a problem of this kind the father will show up with a correct surname, but a child will show (in an Individual List Search) with the middle name as surname!
