SIT: Surnames from other countries
« on: Saturday 14 February 09 06:50 GMT (UK) »
Would it be possible to have surnames for countries other than those listed. I am interested in names from Sweden, Norway and Denmark as well as Reunion.

Any chance of this being set up - I know how busy you are Berlin-Bob, but it could be very helpful as there many many thousands of migrants from these countries to USA, Australia, Canada and of course little old New Zealand and even to the UK

Why not just put them into the same surname table [unless they involve a different alphabet]?  I put in some surnames that I am looking for in the US and I notice that other people have surnames in Australia and elsewhere.
Wiltshire:  Banks, Taylor
Somerset:  Duddridge, Richards, Barnard, Pillinger
Gloucestershire:  Barnard, Marsh, Crossman
Bristol:  Banks, Duddridge, Barnard
Down:  Ennis, McGee
Wicklow:  Chapman, Pepper
Wigtownshire:  Logan, Conning
Wisconsin:  Ennis, Chapman, Logan, Ware
Maine:  Ware, Mitchell, Tarr

Erato,

Yes, there is only one Surname Interests Table.
Don is referring to the drop-down menu of country names.


Don,

yes, I'll do that at the next opportunity.


All,

Any other countries, you'd like to see in the list ??

:)
