The mod allows search for a woman by married name without going to the Advanced Search screen. Version 2 includes a radio button below the last name field with "Birth" as the default option and "Married" as the alternative.

It is now available for all templates 1-20 as a Mod Manager config file.

This mod has been subsumed by Broad Search mod which also checks nicknames and renaming events.
