In my G2G feed I only get notification for one surname, How do i get notifications for 2?
G2G feed is based on the TAGS you follow, not the names on your watchlist.

Your G2G feed is driven by the tags you are following on your profile. You can add more tags on your G2G Feed (click the Tags followed: ...  [add or edit] link), or on your profile (click the Following ... link).

The Watch List is list of all the profiles you are currently Profile Manager of.  If, for instance, you have profiled yourself  and your parents and all four grandparents and all eight grandparents you would have 1+2+4+8= 15 profiles on your watch list.  Each known surname would be listed. The surname is the LNAB (Last Name At Birth)

As mentioned, all the profiles you enter/are manager plus those where you are on the Trusted List.

On your profile page, at the upper right just (to the left of your ID) click on WikiTree  and scroll down the list.  Then click on WatchList from there.

Add each surname tag (using separate tags) that you want to follow to your profile. When you are sent WikiTree activity to your email it will show you others who have added those tags.

It will also show  you some of the contributions made to profiles with those surnames. If you click on the tag it will show you which members are contributing most to that surname.
