A person can have more than one name. It's useful to record this so that you can search and index people by all their names, particularly women who changed their surnames when they get married. You can also record the date that the name change happened (the date a woman got married for instance).
The list at the top of the data form shows the current aliases for this person. The currently selected alias is highlighted.
Add a new alias by clicking on the New alias button. You can now enter the "Date of change", "Surname", and "Firstnames" data in the edit boxes above the buttons.
When you make any changes to the data, the data form will become highlighted using the "Dialog editing indicator" colour. This indicates that the data is currently being edited and has not yet been saved to the database. Click on the Accept edit button to save the new data to the database, or the Cancel edit button to cancel any changes made.
To edit the data for an existing alias, first select the alias you want to change in the list at the top of the data form. The current data will appear in the edit boxes above the buttons. Modify the data and click on the Accept edit button.
Delete an alias by selecting the required alias in the list at the top of the data form and then clicking on the Delete button.
It is possible to have the program automatically create an alias for a woman when she gets married. Set this option in Preferences.
