Surname Prefixes

Recommended Posts

Peter Buyk

At the moment names like "van hoof" are sorted under the V on mine site, but I want them sorted under H

In my genealogy program (Gensdatapro) I fill this name in as "Hoof, van"

In TNG I have made the following settings under Setup - Configuration - General Settings, Names

Name Order: Surname first (without commas)

Surname Prefixes: Threat as separate entity

What do I wrong?

When you do directly type the name in TNG

Name - Hoof
Surname Prefix - van
Last/Surname - Hoof

van Hoof is then sorted under H instead of V

A gedcom export from TNG looks then 

0 @I1@ INDI
1 NAME Francisca /van Hoof/
2 GIVN Francisca
2 SPFX van
2 SURN Hoof

A gedcom export from Gensdatapro looks

0 @I4@ INDI
1 NAME Adriana Geertruida Hendrika Francisca/van Hoof/
2 GIVN Adriana Geertruida Hendrika Francisca
2 SURN van Hoof

Peter,

There is a separate Prefix field. Why not use that?
