I find that there is often confusion by people querying relayionships because the tree details held by the 'Compnay' only contain the individuals FIRST forename. It is the case that names run in families and often only the second forename is a differentiator. In the Stanley clan for instance almost half the males are called JOHN so John William or John Henry etc is an important qualification to make. I had an example when looking for relatives in the US and found many related trees but because of copying faulty info and having only one forename to go on they had missed out almost a century of family names. Don;t you think that if we load a Gedcom file with multiple forenames to a site such as Genes or Ancestry it should be stored in that form and not "chopped"
