Has there just been a FamilySearch exercise to delete Alternate Names?
Over the last two days (18 & 19 September 2023) I have just noticed there have been around 70 changes recorded relating to individuals in my Following list - all shown as "Alternate Name Deleted". Only about 30 odd relate to separate IDs, as the pattern appears to be for two per person to have been deleted. Every one involves a "Birth Name".
Would a moderator / employee (or anyone else "in the know") please confirm whether this is a known exercise that is currently underway? Something similar happened some years ago, but appears to have stopped when some users complained. I'm okay with this (as I only ever add AKAs, so know they're not alternate names I originally added), but believe we should have been advised of such an exercise being undertaken.
