In light of the Rootsmagic white paper stating Ancestry has no place for the Person Nickname Field whereas Ancestry does recognize the Alternate Name entry, I would like to propose the following;

 

Simple utility to enable those who wish to move closer to the Ancestry Name model a simple utility to change Person Nickname to Alternate Name type: Nickname with option to confirm each entry or all.

 


Overcome the negatives, then only positives and praise remains.....
