Add nobiliary particles options to Surname index in English verion of Heredis

Post by reesjel » Sat Aug 18, 2018 10:10 am

I was told the French version of Heredis has the ability to add nobiliary particles to the surnames list so that they won't be written in ALL CAPS when not applicable.
viewtopic.php?f=18&t=4683&p=12236#p12231

I would love to see this option ("Modifier la liste des particules") to be added to the English version of Heredis as well since I have a lot of surnames that are written this way. (van de Buren, etc.)

See link above where this issue is being discussed.

* [edited to change prefixes to nobiliary particles - I used the wrong terminology before]

It's not prefixes ! but nobiliary particles … the field "Prefix" has a very different meaning ; it is to contain words like "Sir", "Your excelency", etc.
let's use a common Heredis vocabulary 8-)

Okay, in that case that’s what I mean. Nobiliary particles. :)

I was always told it was called prefixes in English I’ll edit my request to avoid confusion.
