The September issue of Family Tree Magazine has just been published, and the surname series continues, with us looking at the fundamental principles of a study, as defined by the Guild of One-Name Studies, the Seven Pillars. I usually put a image of the magazine here, but for a change I have used the image from the article.
This issue focuses on collecting data relating to a One-Name Study. As I don’t have a lot of space in the column, I plan to give further details between now and September, when I will be writing a bit more about the seven pillars and focusing on several of the questions that I find I am asked by those at the start of their One-Name Study journey. If you don’t want to wait for those posts you can read my numerous surname research posts HERE
Family Tree Magazine (UK) is available from magazine themselves as a print or digital version.
The Pharos Introduction course to One-Name Studies starts at the beginning of November, and whilst the majority of focus tends to be on surnames with a British background I am finding that more and more people are sharing their European genealogy and registering those surnames. Either way, if you are wanting to explore the depth of a study and to make sense of it, do consider joining us.
