Sorting of Other Last Names Field

Will putting other spellings of a Last Name in the Other Last Names field mean that the person will sort into both Last Names?

Example: I added Miner and Minor as Other Last Names for William MYNER (Myner-1).  I thought he would now sort into not only the Myner surname list, but also the Miner and Minor surname lists.   I looked, and it does appear that he shows up as a Miner.

It sure would be handy, but would this capability be possible (or advisable)?

Hi Vic,

As you figured it out, the person won't appear in the surname lists for Other Last Names.

We could look at doing that, but it would be a little tricky since you can include more than one name in that field.
