    Default plural genitive of names

    Hello,

    In Lithuanian, we have different endings for genitive (I'm referring to family names, to be precise), e.g. singular nominative - Augustinavicius
    Plural nominativ - Augustinaviciai
    plural genitive - Augustinaviciu
    What would be the plural genitive in an English text?

    The same as a normal noun -s':
    Tony Blair's flight
    The Blairs' flight
