Marriage Field7-26-2011 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood7-27-2011 by Ray Gurganus2
We would save two annoying key strokes by making "Marriage" the default setting. Have the other choices available but marriage is the overwhelming choice in most cases.
Events: "Military" and "Moved"7-3-2011 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood7-4-2011 by Ray Gurganus2
Events: might we add "military" and "moved?"  "Emigrate" and "Immigrate" refer to moving into our out from a country.  "Moved" is useful within our borders.

names at the top of fields6-25-2011 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood6-26-2011 by Ray Gurganus2
Thanks, Ray, for adding the names of parents at the top of the page.
headings for new child fields6-23-2011 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood6-23-2011 by Ray Gurganus3
It would be very helpful to me if, when adding a new child, the names of the parents could be shown at the top of the page that contains the new child addition fields. In several instances, I've attached a child to the wrong parents, and at other times, have been worried that, in fact, that was what I might be doing. If I could see the parents' names at the top of the child addition fields, those kinds of mistakes will be less likely.
State Abbreviations6-21-2011 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood6-21-2011 by Ray Gurganus2
My suggestion is that foreign visitors to the website would probably benefit from a handly list of state abbreviations.
multiple names6-14-2011 by Ray Gurganus6-14-2011 by Ray Gurganus1
Someone has asked to be able to record multiple names for the same person, like when someone migrates to a different country and changes their name or the spelling of their name.  Then they would show in search results under either name.  Let me know if you have any related requests so that I can take everything into account as I plan for this.  Thanks!
Location - old names 10-10-2010 by Rod Mclatchy10-11-2010 by Ray Gurganus2
I was curious about  a place for Old names for a location.
I have a few ancestors that came from one Country only now that city is in a different country.
for example Volhynia, ukraine. it was in Russia at the time.

or even parts of Canada have changed. I have ancestors born in Rupert's land. but that has changed names twice since..

I think limiting ourselfs to current names is almost obscuring the history.
Surnames8-2-2010 by Tamra Jackson8-2-2010 by mary sill drake2
I am new here, and I can't remember who's names I'm researching that may belong here, so I was wondering if you could list all the surnames?  Maybe this is already done, and I just can't find it!  Thanks for any help!
