Multiple Name Variations
Posted by: Robert Akin (ID *****5906) Date: February 01, 2003 at 18:26:49

I just imported a GEDCOM into PAF 5.2 that was made with FamilyTreeMaker 10.0. FTM allows you to enter multiple variations for a name. For example, Olson and Oleson would be alternate names for the same individual depending upon which source record you found. This cause PAF to generate a GEDCOM Import Error stating that "PAF cannot store more than one name per individual." If this is true, how do folks handle these name variations within PAF? Do you use the "Alias" feature? Just enter a note? I could use some advice.
