Is there a way to get a list of ancestors in my watchlist with one specific last name? I can get suggestions from the top search box, but I would like to print it.

Here's another way...go to the profile of the ancestor with the surname you want. The surname will be filled in the last name search box already. Just click the search button. On the next page that comes up, among all the links at the top of the page is one which says "limit to Watchlist." Click that. The list which comes up is just the people on your Watchlist with that surname. It includes the females, too. There are a whole bunch of options down the right side of that page to change the way you want to view the list.

You can sort the watchlist alphabetically and scroll through it.

You can also use WikiTree+ to search for profiles managed by you. (Note this won't have items on your watchlist that you don't manage.) Use the Search then Text search criteria.

For example https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch1&Query=Barton-7380+Barton&MaxProfiles=500&SortOrder=Default&PageSize=10

Thank you. I had forgotten about this app.
There a page for wikitree+? Press the ? mark on the top logo.
I usually find it by going to my Suggestions (under MyWikiTree menu) then click the + for WikiTree Plus or the ? for WikiTree Plus Help.
