Searching for Elizabeth LNAB

+3 votes

A search for Elizabeth Doe will find Elizabeth with dozens of various last names but will not find Elisabeth Doe or Isabelle, Beth, Bess.

Should we enter alternate spellings somewhere in their profile?

Liza, Liz, Betty ... Depending on the sources, I use the preferred name or nickname fields to show the variation(s). Sometimes I'll note the possibilities in the bio.  If I don't have any sources to show that she used a diminutive, I tend to stick with Elizabeth.
