Hi Celia,

I've added a new topic here:
"User's Guide" to the SIT: Editing Surname Interests"
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,84454.0.html

Hope this helps.

Hello Bob
I have just discovered why my edit didn't do anything,I have ten surname interest.I tried again but it still didn't work,so i scrolled back up, to go back.And there at the top of the page was the surname i needed to edit. (no mention of that)Not visable from my last entry,so i tested the edit,pressed add to surename interest and it worked.Simple ;D
So there are the instructions for editing your Name interests ;D ;D

Can I search for a surname which does not appear in my own personal list.  If so how ?

I have finished entering my surname interests, but they don't appear on my page when I click on my username.  Is there a way I can remedy this?  Thanks,

Hi Glenys,

not sure if this is what you were expecting here, but ...
There is no link between the RootsChat profile names and the SIT

You have entered your names (I checked, they are all there !) and you can now click on "SHOW all with my Surname Interests" to find out who is also researching your names.

... or just browse generally, to see who is researching what !
The usernames you will see are all links to the RootsChatters' profiles, so if you find any matches, you send them a PM if you want to find out more.

If you mean something else, let me know, and we'll find out.
