      Thanks to everyone who has added to the surnames database on the African
      Genealogy web page. It's coming on nicely.

      It seems that a couple of things will improve it, though:

      1) When entering multi-word names (e.g. van der Merwe) it will be best to use
      a capital letter for the first part: Van der Merwe, not van der Merwe.

      2) Also, only use capital letters at the beginning of words, don't capitalise
      the whole name.

      If we do that, the list will sort properly, and it will be easy to see if
      someone is researching the same surname.
