How Do I . . .

. . . login?
 
 
login?   All CCGS members have been sent an email with their login information. Click the word "Members" in the left column of any page and enter your account and password. Access to the members-only portion of the web site will appear below the "Members" button.  If you are having difficulty, please contact the webmaster.
 
change my login name?  After logging in, click the word "Edit Your Profile" under "Members" in the left column. Click on the pencil icon to edit the login name. A new window will open where you can enter a new login name and click the Save button.  Be careful to enter only valid characters (letters, numbers, underscore, dash, period and @ symbol), as invalid characters will be ignored. The only warning will be that they will turn red and then vanish.
 
change my password?   After logging in, click the word "Edit Your Profile" under "Members" in the left column. Click on the pencil icon to edit the password.  A new window will open where you can enter a new password. Be careful to enter only valid characters (letters and numbers only), as invalid characters will be ignored. The only warning will be that they will turn red and then vanish. Note: the special characters which are allowed in the login name cannot be used in the password.
 
change my email, address, or phone number?  After logging in, click the word "Edit Your Profile" under "Members" in the left column. Click on "Contact Info" and then click on the pencil icon to edit.  Click on "Change Login". A new window will open where you can edit your information and click Save when done.
 
search for others researching surnames of interest?  Click on the word "Research" in the left column of any page; then click on the words "Surname Research". Enter a surname and click on the magnifying glass. If you find a surname of interest, click on the envelope icon to send a message to the submitter of that surname. You will not see the email address of the submitter, in order to protect the privacy of our members.
 
submit my surnames to be listed?   You must be a member of CCGS in order to submit your surname information. After logging in, click the word "Research" in the left column of any page. From the drop down list under "Research" click on the words "Surname Research". Clicking on "Add Surname" will bring up a page where you can enter a surname, location and range of applicable dates. Click "Save". You may add as many surnames as you like. The more information you include with each surname, the better your chances of a match with another researcher.
