Guild of One-Name Studies – Regional Meeting.

CaptureOn Saturday I had the opportunity to attend one of the Guild of One-Name Studies regional meetings in Yorkshire. Members step forward to present to other members therefore enabling attendees to explore and discover elements which might assist their One-Name studies or genealogical pursuits.

First up was Sue, a regional rep who spoke about the resources available to those researching convicts. Next up was another Sue whose talk I especially found interesting, for reasons which will become apparent in a forthcoming post in my Oral History Series. Then another Sue talked about Welsh Patronymic surnames and finally Jackie, not Sue! facilitated a session, “How I do a One Name Study”.

These sessions are not recorded. They are organised by the Regional Reps for Yorkshire and encourage interaction and networking with other Guild members, although non-members are welcome to attend and there were a few present, as well as a few others who reside in neighbouring Counties.

The image shown here was created by me, using a word-cloud website and very much expresses the fundamentals of the Guild.

    I’m very envious that our Yorkshire members get this kind of opportunity. Wish we had something like it in Wales
