I have a person who was born "Kolatzki", short after adopted "Schneider" and then married "Lipps".
With which name should I start the birth? "Kolatzki" I think.
Then I can add an "Adoption" but can't add the adoption name "Schneider".
When added the marriage the married name "Lipps" is easily added.

In editing names I can choose the typ of name (born, adopted...) but can't add the second one beside of "married"?

Please let me know what to do!
THANKS!

Adding the Adopted Name should be as easy as adding the married name.

When you are looking at the individual you want to add an additional name and you have authority to update/change the person.

Go to the Edit Icon and select "Add a Name"
Then drop down the list of "TYPE" of name.

See the attached pictures.

According to the GEDCOM standards, you should add one name record for each name.

However, many popular desktop program can only handle one name record per individual.
So, they add "sub-name records" for married names, etc.

webtrees supports both structures. (Multiple names / One name with sub-records).
