Re: Add Russian name as the Name or Alternate Name?

In the case of my own ancestors, they were all serfs of limited education who lived far from the major cities of the day, and were probably lucky to be able to write their names in Russian, let alone in another language. Therefore I think it would be inaccurate to enter e.g. "John" in the ...

Re: Add Russian name as the Name or Alternate Name?

I don't think your first bullet point option ("the main name at the top of the entry in both Cyrillic and Roman") is a good idea. I say this because there's no good way to enter Cyrillic and Roman names into just the Roman name parts. That would require you to enter the first name as some...
