Subject: [DNA] RE-FTDNA family finder - adding surnames to profile

Note that FTDNA has added the option of inserting all of your ancestral surnames into your personal along with their "country" names.
Apparently, it will be searched when cousins are found.
Please include the city/shtetl name along with the country name or the database use will be quite limited and have a significance similar to that of the haplogroup identifier at ysearch.
It should reduce the number of emails one will receive when cousins are found.
