Surname Tips (24)

Surname Tips

Copyright – Julie Goucher 2019

Today’s tip is write or talk about your study. Over the years, I have heard many members say that they rarely hear from others with an interest in their surname.

Why would you unless you actively share with the wider genealogical community that such as study exists? Why not share about your study via any or all of this non-exhaustive list:

  • Members can host a website on the Members Website Project platform as I have shared before, some of which have the added benefit of a blogging platform built in.
  • Profile page which sits on the main Guild website and is effectively a platform that you can leap frog to other sites
    • Website
    • DNA Project
  • Social media channels
    • Twitter
    • Facebook Group or page
  • Articles
    • Journal of One-Name Studies published by the Guild
    • Genealogical magazines
    • Journals of County, State genealogical societies
  • Talks and Presentations
    • Webinars
    • Societies and groups

And come back tomorrow, for our final Surname Tip.
