The Surname Directory is a selection of the surnames being researched by the members of the Family Tree Forum.
If you want to add your surname interests to the Family Tree Forum website there are two ways to do it:
The best way is to add your own tree to the GEDCOM database
which gives you the facility to search by name, place and/or year of birth.
Alternatively you can add your names to the relevant pages in the Surname Directory.
The Surname Directory is intended for those names which would not appear in the GEDCOM database
because the “owners” of the surname have been born since 1900 and have no date of death, or for those members who do not have a computerised version of their tree and would still like to enter their main names.

You can search
the GEDCOM database
in the Family Tree Forum to find possible matches.
The Surname Directory is only for surnames, not for individuals or for lookup requests.
If you are looking for a specific individual you can ask for help on the Research Advice
section of the Family Tree Forum.
