I have not had to deal with this until my good fortune of finding many Swedish ancestors with this forums help.
 
How do most family historians record or note that a person used both Anton Magnusson and Anton Carlsson at different times in their life.  What name goes where on Family group sheets and pedigree charts?
 
I need more than a little guidance on this because I want my records to make sense to others.
 
Thank you.

Hi Barry,
When I face a situation as you mention, I usually use the last known name in the “head” of a Family group sheets or a pedigree chart. The other names I mention in comments.
For example my grandfathers father was born as Nils Magnus Magnusson Appelgren (= applebranch) (1803-1884) and son of gardener. When Nils became a soldier he got a new name Palm (as in Palmtree). He wore that name for the rest of his life.
I my material I write him as Nils Magnus Magnusson Palm but also mention him - with source - as  Nils Magnus Magnusson Appelgren.
I hope you get more answers on this question.
Vänligen,
Olle

Olle,
 
I have always used PAF a free program but I  just bought and loaded Roots Magic today.  Fortunately it looks like entering multiple names for an individual and indexing and referencing all of those names will be relatively easy.  You can even insert customized fields so it it should help organize the data quite a bit.
