"another one is:
fammem1-fammem10"

But careful: -aorder- on Ekaterina`s dataset would tend to position her variables as

fammem1                          
fammem1_liv                     
fammem2                         
fammem2_liv 

and so on. Even -order fammem?- or -order fammem*- would not make this work...
