What's New? > More on sources #3

Ray Gurganus8-23-2021 07:33 PM
When adding or editing a source, a new field is added for listing prrimary surnames contained in the source.  "Primary surname" means that the name should occupy a large portion of the source content, rather than just being mentioned a few times.  For multiple names, enter them separated with a comma.  Please don't use any other punctuation, like slashes or ampersands.

This is not applicable and should be left blank for city directories, alumni directories, or sources that relate to only one person or one family group.

When this is defined, this will show at the top of the search results page, when searching by that name. Example: ourfamtree.org   To be added soon is adding an option on each individual page for people with that name, and perhaps other places.

I am currently updating existing sources.
