What Alan is seeing is just Genbox's normal operating procedure. It
doesn't interfere with sorting. It doesn't cause any problems at all. The
names without any surnames appear first in the Individuals' List. They
aren't being considered as surnames. Here's an example:
1160 , Anna
879 , Cheryl
994 , Josephine M.
1008 , Magdalena
979 , Rosa
458 ACKER, Alan
452 ACKER, Albert
456 ACKER, Anita
473 ACKER, Brittney
This doesn't require any "fix" because there isn't any problem.
