An immensely frustrating problem with FH (and presumably all or most other
programs?) is dealing with variants of a family name. This has at least two
(1) Over time, and from different sources, various spelling will be used.
I'd like to have a structured (hence listable, sortable) way of entering
that name for a large number of events (birth, marriage, census, etc) and to
be able to show these tidily in charts.
(2) When using the records window to look for possible matches between
"instances" of individuals, the default sort order is not good enough for
matching across all variants, UNLESS i give everyone the same "generic"
name. That solution has its own problems, largely arising from (1).
Any ideas, please?
