Alias
Athol Geoffrey Stewart

Hi,

I am unhappy about the 'alias' section in a member's details.

In Family Tree Builder I checked for '(tools) consistency issues and got maybe eight requests to move a name to the alias section.

In the case of my own name it was shown as Athol Geoffrey "Geoff" Stewart, because I am known by the shortened version of my second name. This is common practice.

But if I am to move it to another part of the front of the card I don't want it to be called 'alias'.

In English that is used in the case of criminals. Only criminals.

And of course it is not a nick-name. I went to school with people with nick-names like 'Pig' or 'Doggy'

Maybe you could call it 'Usually known as' or something. NOT alias.

 

Geoff
