Cannot find members of the Bedőházi family.

Could the problem be the letter "ő"? It is displayed using a different font (a bit ugly) in the profile. Now my problem is that I cannot list family members: search returns no hits, while some profiles were created weeks ago. Google does find some of the profiles.

I tried searching for "Bedőházi" and I got a list of results. Did you enter any other search criteria, or did you just enter the last name?
Many thanks. I am not sure what changed, but now search works for me too.

If you created them, or are profile manager, go to ‘my wikitree’ click and scroll down to ‘watchlist’ click and you will see them. Click whichever one you want to open .

Many thanks for the answer. I was trying to use search to find them and this was that did not work yesterday. Seems perfect today, though.

A list of Bedőházi profiles comes up when I click on the surname in his profile. It also comes up when i copy-paste "Bedőházi" into the search field. I  have not tried typing it.
To get better help I suggest you describe your search method in more detail.

Many thanks for the answer. It seems the profiles were too recent - now search works seamlessly.

I have had that problem too when searching. Profiles in my watchlist don't come up, or inconsistently.

If you manage the profiles, using the "Name on Watchlist" option should solve the problem. Click on the field and wait before entering a name, it can take several seconds to load the watchlist. The search ignores accented characters, so there should not be an issue there.

While I was thinking to use search to find them, this is definitely something I will consider. Some time ago, there was a limit on the names one could watch, I hope I have not reached that yet.
The search does not ignore accented characters, in my experience. In order to find any of my Rőczey ancestors using "search in watchlist", I have to type exactly Rőc...; Roc and Röc have zero results. Likewise with Biro versus Bíró, Daniel versus Dániel, etc.
