Surname Tradition
When you add new members to a family, PhpGedView can supply default values for surnames according to regional custom.

  • In the Paternal tradition, all family members share the father's surname.
  • In the Spanish and Portuguese tradition, children receive a surname from each parent.
  • In the Icelandic tradition, children receive their male parent's given name as a surname, with a suffix that denotes gender.
