I am not sure if this is the correct plarform to raise my question.If not kindly advise where I can get answers.
Display names and profle identification.Does FAM SEARCH have guidelines on--do we use the document description ?or the authers prefferance?
I use the document name .but another user has an"Standarized" name.This causes problems with docs obtained from sources using the document "Name"
How do I solve this problem.?
The other user maintains it is his right.
: The tree was started by others-who used the norm.
@Faan Jacobs, I confess that I'm kind of stuck at the level of "animal, vegetable, or mineral" -- are you naming people, places, or something else?

In general, FamilySearch's Family Tree is flexible in how people use its name fields, with no limit on how many different names a profile can have (although all but one of them goes in the Other section), and a powerful dual-value setup for both places and dates that allows a human-parseable display linked to a computer-parseable standard. In both cases, as long as the name is entered in a correct way (of many), the various algorithms (Find, Research Helps, Source Linker) will generally find it. This means that if you have a disagreement with another contributor (which it sounds like you do), you can afford to just step back from the question and leave things be for a while: the profile will not get lost just because the legal name is not in Vitals or the birthplace is under its modern name.
