Hello.

The methodology part 4 materials say we should capitalize surnames.

I remember when that was a thing with older programs, like PAF. But is this still considered a best practice? I know familysearch.org now asks for "normal capitalization" with surnames — that is, caps only on the first letter, lowercase for the rest. 

The materials (at p 24) say uppercase makes it easier to find names in reports and to distinguish last names from first names. While I take the point, I've never found charts or reports that use normal capitalization all that hard to use. But I'm curious what others think.
