Sorry, Chris, I don't understand your question.  Do you mean which names should you be using as TAGS on G2G?  Or do you mean what names are in your ancestry?

The main names in my ancestry.
Chris, You have completely out your ancestry so you know who your great-great-grandparents are.  Why would their last names not be the "main names" in your ancestry?
I am adopted by my dad so Keener is not my given surname. I am having trouble finding any information on my given surnames side, McCombs, as well as my moms maternal grandparents side, Jones.


I guess I was wondering if names are added the farther back you go.
