Hello: 
I'm encoding community histories and many of the texts have individual's names listed and I'm looking for some advice. 

The original looks like this ... 

Mrs. Scott Jardine, Vice-President 

Scott is her husband's name. Can I create a type for forename (eg. type="husbandname")? 

I've encoded it like this 
<persName> 
<addName type="honorific">Mrs.</addName> 
<forename type="husbandname">Scott</forename> 
<surname>Jardine</surname></persName>, 
<roleName>Vice-President</roleName> 
</persName> 

Thanks, 
Donald
