Purpose of the mod
In Sweden it's quite common (in genealogy) to mark the "called by" first name with an * (astersik) when a person has more than one first name.
For example a person may be baptized to John Adam and is called John. His name is registered as John* Adam
Another person is also baptized to John Adam but is called Adam. His name is registered as John Adam*
When you search for John Adam, you will only find John Adam* because there is no asterisk after John in the search string.
My users frequently send me Gedcom files with asterisks in the names and I remove them.
Now I don't have to any more.
This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe.
