BRENDA SOUTHWELL You say there was a new name but you didn't get round to emailing them, and now it is gone:- Click on "Your Home Page" and then "Name Summary". That lists all the names you have in your tree. At the top you will see a box for number of days, which you can change. Once you have changed the number of days you have to click "here" to give it the chance to change and then just go down to the surname you were after and check out the "new names". If you change the number of days to, say 2 / 3, then all the new names added in the last 2 / 3 days will show up and you should find the one you are looking for. Hope this helps.
