Family Tree Magazine 2019 – Surname Research Series & #FamilyTreeLive

FTM May 2019In the May 2019 issue, the surname series continues with us looking at the history of surnames.

Did you know Turkey only introduced surnames to their citizens in 1934 and in Iceland they organise names by first names.

How could you not be curious about surnames, especially since we all have one, well apart from Iceland!



Next week I am off to #FamilyTreeLive where I am giving a workshop and presentation. You can sign up, but be quick the event is next weekend!

Surname Research Guide FTM CoverThe Guild of One-Name Studies will be there and will have some copies of the booklet that was distributed with the April edition of Family Tree Magazine.

There will also be information on the Pharos introduction course for those tempted to start a One-Name study. Hopefully the series in the magazine and the posts in this blog will have inspired you!
