Sorry I forgot that searching posts is not as effective as using the surname summary was.

The quick search does apparently give you results other than Campbell but if you look at the thread you shoulld find a Campbell mentioned somewhere.

Hi KenSE,

How do you do that??
I put specific names eg campbell and other names come up.

Yes I used to like that facility.

I think the problem was that it was becoming very slow due to the number of posts and trees. So the search function has been enhanced to replace it.

Hi Guys in the past you could go to your surname summary, and click on the number to the side of it and this would take you to posts also searching that name has this now gone, please bring it back as now you have to search through all now or am i just missing something
