SIT: Surname Interest Board listings
« on: Monday 16 April 12 17:11 BST (UK) »
Forgive me if I am posting this incorrectly but have checked all over and had no other choice.
While checking the surname interest list  under "S" I find they are not in alphbetical order and hope this will be corrected.  Also under "R"  is see Rev Simpson G Morrison & Rev William C Tait, and Richard Nixon.  Should these rater be listed under "M" . "T" &  "N" surname lists.
As for locating a moderator to post this to, the only report to moderator was at the botton of someone else's posting??
Thanks for reading this    anker_pep52

I keep telling people that this is for SURNAMES, but do they listen ?  ::)

Maybe sometime they will realise that rhey are not findinding anyybody else with those surnames. Now and then I correct some of the worst mistakes, but, due to so many other things to do, that is very low priority.

regards
Bob

Thank you Bob-They are now in alphabetical order.  Yes , some people have included the area in which the person lives in the surname section-  maybe the instructions on the form could be stressed more to include--- one name or hyphenated name only in this space.  Do you think that may help.  Thanks for responding to my querie.  I will most likely have more in the future.
