        In Legacy there is no established protocol to record illegitimate
births.  I do the same as you are doing in PAF and I also add a note to the
mother indicating the birth circumstances such as "Unwed mother" or "Not
married to father", etc..
    Legacy also provides the choice of not printing notes or portions of
notes in reports where privacy is considered necessary.  PAF may do so also.
