congrats on a another great idea.... Not sure if this has been covered before but here`s a couple of suggestions christian name unknown - going right back to 1700`s here but some of my relatives have unknown christian names. Quite important if descendants married each other (don`t ask!!) would be useful to be able NOT to enter a year of birth. I have one line of descendancy with about 30ish names but no years of birth... quite tricky one but any chance of a global rename function - found out one of my grandfathers cousins surname had been mispelt ended up having to delete and add lots of descendants....
