Displaced Kings’ “regnal numbers”

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that first_name Henry VIII last_name “” suffix King of England in my Ancestry tree has arrived in TNG (via Family Tree Maker) as first_name Henry last_name “” suffix King of England VIII; Not what I want. Any ideas on how to keep the presentation I chose?

Answering my own question, the problem is with Family Tree Maker and it only exists with this particular configuration - there is a bug or a”feature”, if you will, that moves the “VIII” to the end of the suffix, whether on a GEDCOM import or if you do it manually in FTM. On the other hand “Richard I the Lionheart” is not a problem, nor is it if you put first_name “Henry VIII”  last_name “King of England”. I have flagged this up to the FTM HELPDESK who are looking at it actively.

Just switch off automatic corrections in the FTM options screen.
