How do I group similar surnames?
{{languages}}Variants of a surname complicate reports that summarize family lines. But there are features to include variants (and statistical outliers) in with the larger grouping.== How do I group can similar surnamesbe grouped? ==<code>From: Dave Scheipers - 2019-03-20 20:33:51</code>The Gramps' '''Group As''' surname override found in the '''Name Editor''' is advanced feature.
I do not know how many users The following example configures certain names to take advantage of Gramps' '''Group As''' surname override found in the '''Name Editor'''. It is probably a small minoritycapability.
But I have been configuring certain names to take advantage of the capability. {{man tip|1=Accessing the Name Editor|2=Names are an [[Gramps_Glossary#attribute|Attribute ]] of a [[Gramps_Glossary#person|Person]]. The advanced features are accessed from the [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Names|Names tab ]] while editing a Person.
*Select a Person &amp; press {{Man key press|CTRL|Enter}} (or double-click) to open the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Edit_Person_dialog|Edit Person]]}} dialog.  *Select the Names tab, select a Name &amp; press {{Man key press|CTRL|Enter}} (or double-click) to open the {{man label|[[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_3#Name_Editor|Name Editor]]}} dialog.}}

In the reports that I use most when sharing with relatives (the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_7#Narrated_Web_Site|Narrated]] and [[DynamicWeb_report|Dynamic Web]]), navigation by Surname or Individuals utilizes this grouping and all the Clark and Clarke individuals are grouped together. But the Surname heading was just the one name used in the grouping, “Clark”.

Suppose you want to quickly select a very tiny group of persons inhabiting a small isolated endogamic hamlet XYZZY. These people bear the unique (not seen elsewhere) names of Hamsmith, Letthompson, Hamjones and Letjones. You can give all this names the Grapup As key "XYZZY" and they will display together in the list. Note my example is a bit contorted because you can select them from place name XYZZY. You can tranpose my example to a more sensible "King Rex's descendants" key...''
