Only the immediately preceding (and immediately following also, if it’s represented by a Name AR) belong in 510 fields.  If there is a longer sequence of names for the (essentially) same corporate body, I include in a 670 field the longer history.

a question about corporate name authority records --


when a corporate name has multiple previous names,  do you enter a 510 for all of them or only for the name that immediately preceded the name in the 110?  If more than one, how do you show the order of previous names?
