There are several ways you can learn about the concept of a One-Name Study or Surname Research.
The first is the Guild of One-Name Studies website, the second is the Introduction to One-Name Studies offered by Pharos for which I am the tutor and Thirdly, the Guild publication, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom – the art of a One-Name Study which is available from the Guild Shop or from Amazon.
The next opportunity is to join the Guild and take advantage of the many benefits offered to Members, the knowledge of around 3,000 members and by just beginning your study. Truth be told, you are possibly already underway with your study, you might not realise just yet.
There are on the Guild website some key pages that you might find very useful and these are:
The Guild offers monthly webinars, which for the current year are about the stages of the Seven Pillars. You can read about them HERE.
If you are in the UK, you could attend one of our seminars, these are round every quarter and the location varies across the country. The next one is in Sunderland with others scheduled – you can see the list of presenters for the Sunderland seminar and the list of forthcoming seminars HERE.
