Linda, I never put my middle names in the middle name box now because when I did it didnt show up, and they can be the key to elimination, so what I do is add them to the forename box and they show up! So until the website can be redesigned to allow for them,it is a temporary solution but it will only work in searches I suppose if everybody did it. Marika There is a link for getting started down there on the left under General Info, but I think most people are excited when they register and just dive in and dont read the links first( like men who never read instruction manuals!)
