For Linda Bates re: your 'known as' problem

I am having a problem replying to your post for some reason. It keeps telling me there is an error. This is what I was trying to reply. ************************************************ Hi Linda ********************** I have the same problem. My Dad was Edward Roy known always as Roy. I have entered him as Edward (Roy) as his first name. Similarly I am Susan (Sue) and my husband Douglas (Doug) as they are the names on our birth certificates but we have always been known by our bracketed names since childhood. I couldn't think of any other way to do it. Hope this helps Sue
