Mr. Gross advised members to avoid publishing their
surnames as a method of research.
I wish to correct this. I never used the word "avoid".
I was simply suggesting that the quantity of surname posts

find people. Though it may be a remote way of finding a relative,
I never said that it was impossible or foolish to try.
