    Will be interesting over time how this does play out. Especially given that legal recognition isn’t law in all countries. Being introduced to Caitlin Jenner doesn’t mean I know by birth she was Bruce Jenner hence would miss a lot of records. Oh what mysteries being created for future genealogists.

    I understand the general policy within genealogy is using birth name forever, but legally the person is given new identity (name & gender) where law permits. If it was a question of transgender, then birth name/gender would be used. Will pose it to some people one day (in the LGBTQ community) and see how they respond.
