Learning and One-Name Studies

Having decided to work on a One-Name or surname study you will want to be as well informed as possible in terms of methodology, ideas, hints, tips, tricks and everything in between.

The Guild offers seminars to members and non-members alike for a reasonable fee. In the main they are recorded with those being available to members only. We have just launched a webinar series and you read about those at the website. They will be available to non-members for a short period before becoming a members only benefit.

Each year there is a Guild conference and again the sessions are generally recorded and made available to members only.

There is a book that I hearterly recommend, The Surnames Handbook by Guild member Debbie Kennett and is available from the Guild and Amazon. There is also the Guild publication, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom: Art of a One-Name Study,again available from Guild and Amazon.

Also the Pharos Introduction to One-Name Studies course which runs usually twice a year and lasts for five weeks. It is totally offered online and global members are encouraged.

I will be back with other One-Name and surname research posts in the future and if you did find this series useful,or would like me to cover a particular topic, then please leave a comment.
