This is an outstanding tutorial!  Somehow I'd like to see a better link on the updates tab since I missed seeing it the first time I came here.

I missed it too.  But it's hard to believe we are supposed to put two surnames in the surname field; it doesn't seem right at all.  How is that gonna work?  Very strange.  I think I will not be working on these anymore; I feel very weird about it

RE: Last comment about two surnames- this is a common practice in indexing. It identifies a woman by her maiden and married name or any individual by their *birth* name and any aliases.
