    Yes, that is how it works. But it is a messy process, so I recommend you experiment and review the results. Although you can create those extra surnames in the GUI editor, it is easy to over-write them again with a subsequent edit, so it can be easier to use raw GEDCOM edit instead I find.

    Using your example he will Galway be displayed as “GERSH” but searchable as that plus both of the other variants.
