Do name pages still exist? [2 January 2010]

I'm new to WeRelate (Jan 2010) and found this Help page about Name pages, but I don't see the option on the menu. Am I looking in the wrong place (been known to happen) or have Name pages gone away? Thanks.

(I looked under both the Search and Add menu options on the pulldown menu.)--DataAnalyst 19:52, 1 January 2010 (EST)

It's a little confusing because there are two sets of name pages: Given and Surname. Yes, they do still exist. Use these pages to show various spellings of a name. It saves having to list all spelling variations on each person's page. --Judy (jlanoux) 20:46, 1 January 2010 (EST)
Thanks. I had found an awkward way to get to the surnames (via the featured Surname Portal), but now I see that I should have done Search : All from the menu and then selected the appropriate namespace. Thought I must be missing something.
