Please add Given Name as a pick option for People View.


I am working a large family file at present with 4 distinct surname spelling variations which alter more by registration district rather than family choice. Adding the ability to choose the Given Name as a field on People View would help group these individuals together more for easier scrutiny.


I have created Alternate Names (Other Spellings) outside Rootsmagic to serve my purpose but I believe this field is an important one to provide within People View selections.
