Adding Surnames

(For this example I will use the surname "Gene", substitute your surname for "Gene")

To create the "Gene" surname page, type "Gene" into the search box. If the page for "Gene" does exist it will bring up the page for the "Gene" surname. You may edit and add to the existing page. If the page for the "Gene" surname doesn't exist, it will give you the option to create a new page. Write whatever you would like for your surname, maybe some background information, famous people with this surname, etc. You have now created a page for your surname.

Now, to make your surname page show up in the List of Surnames you will need to add a template. At the bottom of your surname page add {{surname}}. This will tell Geni Wiki that your name needs to be categorized in the List of Surnames. To make your surname show up under one of the Heritage Sub-categories, you will need to add that Sub-Categories template. For example, if "Gene" is a surname originating from England, you would type {{english}}. The specific template you need for your surname can be found at the top of each Sub-Category.
