Name Components

This file, introduced with Name Standardization (Patch XU8.0134), holds the component parts of a person's name as follows:

Family (Last) Name (field #1) Given (First) Name (field #2) Middle Name (field #3) Prefix (field #4) Suffix (field #5) Degree (field #6)

The "source name" that has these components is identified by the following three fields:

File (field #.01) Field (field #.02) IENS (field #.03)

The "ANAME" cross-reference on the Family (Last) Name, Given (First) Name, Middle Name, and Suffix fields keeps each component in synchronization with the corresponding source name. In the case of Patch XU8.0134, the source name is the .01 field (the Name field) of the NEW PERSON file (#200).

The Degree and Prefix fields are not considered part of a standard name, but can be used to build formatted names for display.
