I thought that I would celebrate December, the Advent season with a series of surname Tips. The image here is from my Family Tree Magazine (UK) surname series which has just concluded. If you are a reader of the magazine, then stay tuned for my 2020 series. Back to Surname Tips, – one post will be shared every day up to Christmas.
The first tip is to recommend visiting the Guild of One-Name Studies website. The site is a wealth of information for both members and non-members. Members though, do need to login to the website to gain access to the members area.
There is a surname search feature on the website so you can see if any name associated with your family is being searched by a Guild member. If there is, why not email the member. You can also see if the surname appears in any of the Guild indexes. You can read the introduction material of the Guild and see further information about a One-Name Study or surname research.
So in between eating those mince pies and decorating the tree, why not visit the Guild of One-Name Studies website and dabble in surnames?
I will be back with Tip number 2 tomorrow!
