Hi

Just to say, surnames beginning with N seem to stop at Ne.

What is wrong with the Surname Interests-Surname Search feature?

I've just tried it now and there's apparently no Surnames for the letter A.

Sorry All, this is a recurring problem and I have no solution  :(

At midnight (UK time) the surname list is updated and sometimes it misses out letters. 
Usually the missing letter is there again after the following midnight, but then another letter is missing .....  ::)

Not 100% sure, but it may have started after we had 65535 names in the table.
Anybody who knows anything about computers will recognise that number as being (computer) significant.

Now and then, when I have a bit of time, I have another look at the program
but I haven't found anything yet  *Grrrrh !!*

Bob


ps just looked in the database and they are all there, apart from X and that has it's reasons:
there are no RootsChatters searching for for people who's surnames start with X  ;D
(although there are 83 starting with Y and 27 starting with Z)
