We have just got to the end of week one of the new Pharos course, Practicalities of a One-Name Study
The first week looks at, as you might have guessed, spreadsheets and how they can be used in a One-Name study and used for the right task.
Anyone who has read this blog, attended a surname research based lecture or took the Introduction to One-Name Studies course, will know how I use spreadsheets, what my starting point is and so forth.
One thing I do not use them for, is for designing genealogical trees and whilst some do use a spreadsheet for this purpose, I am way to impatient to be one of those researchers and I admire those that do indeed have the patience.
That said, I do use spreadsheets for some interesting tasks and over the coming weeks I may well share them here! If you are interested in taking this course in the future, please click the Enquire about this course feature from the bottom of the course link. No other dates are listed as yet, but I expect to agree some later on, once the first course completes, once I have reviewed the comments and feedback.
