Make ID name changes visible in Change Log (RESOLVED)
There is currently no provision to delete the name of the individual to which the ID relates. This means any change, by overtyping or otherwise, is not recorded in the change log.
I just came across an individual whose identity had been completely changed by another user. Unfortunately, I changed her name back without noting what the other user had amended it to. So, when I sent him a message about this I could not advise him of the name he had used in changing her identity and could not make a note of it myself.
Surely all changes should be visible in the change log, but the only way I can see this as being possible in these instances is to have a "Delete" option when changing a name - as is the case with most other changes.
Interestingly, I see a Death or Sex entry cannot be deleted, but any change appears in the change log, nevertheless.
Surprisingly, I cannot see that this issue has been raised in the past. I feel it is an anomaly that really needs to be addressed.
(See https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/G32L-MGZ where my temporary changes to the sex and death of Hilda (for test purposes) can be seen in the change log, whereas the change of name - I believe to Margaret P ------, I forget the last name, is nowhere to be seen.)
