The option to look up the names by birth date has been removed. Each week I process any name that has turned 110 by using this option. I am watching 1,963 names and now I have to look at each one individually. Please but this option back onto the site asap Thank You. Any question feel free to call me at the above number.

D. Llewelyn said: I hope they bring back that and the other sorting options as well. Every week I used to check for the 110 mark so I could get that work done.0

Paul said: Every new topic raised on the broader subject of the change to "Following" gives me the opportunity to plead for the reinstatement of sorting by last name, too. I never understood why even the default option in the old watch list feature was by first name.0
Helen Marie Fenn said: Where is the person that can make the changes??? I want to make the change not just talk about it!!0
Robert Wren said: Patience, dear Helen, the winds of change in FamilySearch often have very light breezes behind them.

But, MANY problems are solved quite quickly and suggestions taken & implemented quite expeditiously.
Sometimes persistence works, but more often it does NOT.0
