Sadly, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, my Surname talks to be held at the Society of Genealogists on 16th May 2020 has been postponed. Instead, the talks will take place online on Wednesday 3rd June 2020 at 2 pm British Summer Time (BST) for the first presentation and at 5 pm (BST) for the second talk.
Here is the details from the Society of Genealogists website:
In this first presentation, Julie Goucher will deliver an overview of what a One-Name Study is and why one is of benefit to family historians. We delve into the history of surnames in general, types of surnames and any differences in relation to non-British surnames. We also explore considerations of why some surnames may change, overtime as well as variations and deviations.
In the second presentation of the day, we spend some time looking at the foundations and practicalities of building a study, collecting data, surname distribution and analysing information. We then look at the considerations in keeping a study and what you can do next to advance your quest in pursuing surnames.
