Virtual Surname Wall Ready for Searching

I received a notification the other day that the Southern California Genealogical Society's Virtual Surname Wall database has now gone live--ready for searching. I tried it out by searching for the surnames I submitted awhile back.

"The Virtual Surname Wall provides a worry-free way to post information about your ancestors online and find others who are researching your families." There is no charge and you do not have to be a member of SCGS to submit names. No identifying information will be displayed; If SCGS receives an inquiry regarding a possible family connection, they'll forward the requestor’s contact information to you. But you can elect to authorize SCGS to release either your email address or complete contact information.

To find out more about the Virtual Surname Wall or to add your surnames, click here to get to the SCGS web site.
