Have you ever located a variant spelling of your ancestor's name? How about a nickname? Or even an alias? If so, these variant names and spellings should be added to the individual's Alternate Names list.
- Asa Frederick GOAS
- Fredrick GOAS
- Asa GOAZ
- Frederick GOAZ
- Frederick GOES
- Frederick GOEZ
- Frederick GOOZ
- Frederick GOZ
Because I added each name to his Alternate Names list, I can include these other names in reports, web searching, and even in the Index View. To add the alternate names, click on the corresponding icon (see above).
To include the alternate names in the Index View:
- In the Index View, click on the Options button in the upper right.
- Click on Include AKAs in List.
Each alternate name is now alphabetized in the list and is preceded by the ~ symbol. Now it is even easier to locate the ancestor because you can search for him by any of his known spellings or variations.
