Bob Bratt was born Roy Robin - - but went by Bob.  I did not know his legal name until I started doing family research.  Therefore it is misleading to those who may want to find him to only see the Roy Robin in his name at the top of his profile.  Thank you!  I appreciate the help!

Hi Lola,  I went to the "Search Tool" under the Find Icon in the upper right hand corner pull down menu,  I typed in Bob as first name and Bratt as last name and guess which profile came up first...  I hope this answers your request.  Many legal first names are not what a person was known by and hence the Preferred Name Field.
