In my index panel, there are some names that appear indented with a little blue plus sign to the left of the name.

I have two different databases open with the same names (different versions of the same tree.) When I highlight the + flagged name in database A, the person's data is the same (as far as I can tell) as the data in the non + flagged name in database B.

The options are set the same in both databases. Show alternate names, and Show birth year.

Can someone please explain the significance of this?

Thanks,

Dave

That icon indicates the name is an Alternate name entered into the person's Edit person screen by linking the Alternate name fact.
