Hello Paul,

I did not mean to blame you. But here in Belgium with our official three languages (Dutch, French and German) we are very perceptive about linguistic problems. Another example is the city where I live Antwerpen you guys always call it Antwerp the French Anvers and so on.

Regarding the surnames and indexing I made a suggestion several months ago to UFT developers. We should have an additional field under the ‘more’ window of an individual, where we can enter the surname that individual has to be indexed. Our former King Albert I (king during WW I) his full name was Albert Leopold Clement Marie Meinrad van Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha so his surname should be /van Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha/ but we speak of the Coburg dynasty. So I presume a genealogist of the royal family would like to index these individuals under the ‘Coburg’s’…

Kind regards
