AKA data

Is there any way to insert a nickname or an alias for a person?

I see that there is a place for nickname, but I guess what confuses me is that I have a database in Legacy that includes a place for an alias for each individual, but that data didn't seem to get transferred. I notice that in the GED file, the nicknames are shown as

1 Name /Nick/

and this always occurs right after

2 SURN surname

and then is followed by

2 GIVN

2 SURN Nick

which really confuses me

What does TNG do with that nickname?

Nkoss,

 

As far as I know in TNG there are the following options.

Given Name(s) - like Jonathon Marcus (usualy the names on the birthcertificat)

Nickname - Jona (The name generaly used if you adress someone)

 

So the Nickname is not an actual nickname like Shorty in case Jona isn't very lengthy.

I usualy fill the Nickname with Jona (Shorty)

Hope this makes any sence.

Thanks...I see that there is a place for a nickname and I wonder why the import doesn't use it for the imported nickname.
