    On a different tack, the sooner FTDNA re=introduces searching by location (in addition to searching by name) the better. Surely it can't be thatdifficult to implement, can it?
    I recently read that they will NOT be re-introducing the search by location feature - just can't recall where.

    Family Finder search behaviour

    There is some strange behaviour when searching for surnames in the Family Finder match list.

    For example, search for "White". Scroll down the list of hits looking at what is visible in the Ancestral Surname column until you find some that include the letters "White" plus some more characters such as "Whitehurst".

    Then click the list of surnames for that match to reveal all of that person's ancestral surnames. You will find that (in this example) "Whitehurst" has CHANGED to "White". In fact all of the hits have changed to "White". In the cases where "Whitexxxx" was not initially visible one would incorrectly assume that the match had "White" ancestry.

    My point is that the original text should not CHANGE as a result of a search. Comments please.
