Title in given name block

When I follow the GenSmart suggestions and go online to look a person's record and that person has a title before his name the title appears in the "given name" box, therefore making the lookup invalid. Is there a solution to this other than re-entering the given name every time?

FYI - this is posted in the wrong forum... (should be Version 1, not Research Locations)...

SmartLink (via the little down arrow next to the Available Online button) is always helpful when you want to change the default search form population.

What is the title involved and what type of file are you analyzing wiht GenSmarts (FTM, PAF, etc.)?

Sorry about posting in the wrong place. When I search for a census or other look up in Ancestry.com and the title of Rev., Capt., or any other the title appears in the "given name" box. If the person has a suffix such as Jr., Sr., III, MD etc this appears in the "last name" box. So a look up in the census of 1900 for Capt. James Doe Jr. would appear to be [Capt.][Jr]

Thanks for your reply
