For some unknown reason I’ve never really explored RootsWeb much until today. I’ve been on the South Australian RootsWeb mailing list for several years but hadn’t looked much further than that into what RootsWeb offers.
Today I added the four main surnames I am researching to the RootsWeb Surname List.
The first step is to search and see if your ancestors are already listed. If they are not, then you can go ahead and add them. On RootsWeb you use a Name Tag and a Password to access or edit the Surname List. Below are the details for creating a name tag. This is different from your RootsWeb login.
Fill out the form
Read all of the section titled Part II Your Surname Information.
Enter your surname information as instructed.
It’s a good idea to add any alternate spellings for your surnames that you know of.
Now people searching the RootsWeb Surname List can contact me about the people I am researching.
