    Hi Christine,

    Thank you for pointing this out, one of the main points of the site is to allow the public to upload evidence and correct errors like this, by working together we can tackle the many millions of records which is simply too many to be handled by a small team. I can see you have uploaded the evidence which proves the case, you can now use that evidence to update her name.

    To do that
    1 click "add to life story" then under the section "Add Facts from Evidence"
    2 click "Select Evidence" and choose one of the bits of evidence you have added, say the birth record
    3 click that.
    4 select the facts you want to add/improve so "All names" in this case
    5 click the "improve" button above the name and update the name
    6 click "continue" and "save changes" and it's done

    Sounds really complicated but it takes seconds, much quicker than typing this "how to" and no longer than posting a request. Once you've done it a couple of times you'll find it quite quick and easy.
