Alternate Names
Larry Kohn
- Close

In Family Tree Builder you have done an exceptional job of designing the Names window to include a person's Alias, Nickname, Religious Name and Former Last Name.  However, when the tree is published to MyHeritage, none of these fields show up in the person's profile.  For me, and I assume many others, the presence or absence of these fields could very well be the difference between someone being able to recognize (or not) a match in my tree.

Please enhance the MyHeritage profile to display Alias, Nickname, Religious Name and Former Last Name.

Hi Larry,

 

Thank you for your feedback.

I will forward your suggestion to our development team - I hope they implement it in the next version of the Family Site.

It's the same when you make a report. It doesn't tell you names or nicknames and doesn't give sources.  This would be really helpful.

I completely endorse the need for displaying the "preferred/call name" of a person in the tree, as in "Please enhance the MyHeritage profile to display Alias, Nickname, Religious Name and Former Last Name."

Has there been any changes made in V5 of the software to support these long-standing and regular requests?

Hi,

 

You can already see the religious name in the new profile pages (click on View Profile from the tree view).

We are now in the process of adding the other name fields.
