Instructions are on the wiki at Mailing labels.

I know how to print mailing labels in MLS, but I'm trying to find out if there is a way to print out the family name on the mailing labels (for Christmas cards).

I'm trying to find out how to print "The Jones Family" rather than "David Jones". We want the cards to go to the entire household, not just to the head of household.

Is there a way to do that in MLS, or do I need to export, manipulate it and do a mail merge?

Thanks!

You'll need to export (some options are listed in that Mailing Labels wiki article), manipulate it (probably in a spreadsheet) and do a merge. There's no option for your specific request in MLS.
