My g grandmother was not married when she had her first daughter (mom's
biological mother) so she went by her mother's maiden name. My grandmother
then had my mother and gave her up for adoption to her mother and
stepfather. My mom went by the name of her step-grandfather. So how do I
list her in a genealogy chart. By the name her mother went by or the
surname of her stepfather.
I think it is always good to list someone by the name they always went by.
I would think in any genealogy program, there would be a place for notes to
list the other information.
