I was using NameClean recently on a file where many females shared the husbands surname, the Rootsmagic option was to simply delete this surname. Various things I wanted to do were not available from the NameClean UI so I thought I would add them here for the enhancement tracker as making data correct is a big drive for me.

 

1. Creating an Alternate Name "Married" fact would seem to be the desired solution for most records where the wife shares the husbands surname, please add this option.

 

2. Without being able to enter the Edit Person screen I can not be sure if this data is correct or not, Add option for more details to verify data.

 

3. The option to add the selected individuals to a Named Group would also be beneficial for later clean up and verification.

 

4. Individuals Record Number is not visible on this UI, please add it.
