Hi Members, am sharing as passed on from another list..
interesting concept and thought!
Women are the forgotten shadows of the men that they marry.
This is a fact seen when researching Genealogy.
After marriage the woman adopts her spouse's surname and thus
I like the attitude of the PAF Genealogy program that is FREE
Mormon church. It Lists the surname of a woman - in two parts
after the first marriage.
The woman has the 'born surname' first and then follows the
married surname' which is most likely the surname at death.

My mother passed away 2 days ago after a long illness. This
came though the genealogy
network and left such an impression on me that I would like to
Subject: [ROOTS-L] Your Mothers Maiden Name
Is your mothers maiden name on her headstone?
Does anyone but you know who that dear person was?
Lets all go into our cemeteries and identify as many
of the women as we can while we can and record them
in as many places as we can.
Lets give a name to our mothers, sisters, aunts and
grndmothers while we can.
Lets also, from this time forward, put the maiden
name on the headstone of all our women. They
loved their people. They will love you for seeing
that their idenity is not lost.
I hope that you all think about it and help me to
spread the word to give our women their names.
Thanks to all for reading my plea.
