Hi there,

A few names in the sidebar list have a blue icon with the + symbol in it.. I am trying to find out what that means.

Thanks in advance

That means the name is an Alternate name and has an Alternate name fact linked to that person in their Edit person screen. The Sidebar Index options is set to show Alternate name.

The following was overheard at a recent high society party...
"My ancestry goes all the way back to Alexander the Great," said one lady. She then turned to a second woman and asked, "How far does your family go back?"
"I don't know," was the reply. "All of our records were lost in the flood."
