Surname Research

banner_page_headA Surname or One-Name Study is a project where you seek to collect every instance of the surname as far as practical and possible.

The leading international organisation regarding surnames is the Guild of One-Name Studies. I have been a member of the Guild since 2002. I have been a Trustee and Committee member since 2015 and spent my first four years on the Committee as the Guild Secretary.

I was honoured to be awarded the Guild of Master Craftsman at the Annual General Meeting in 2019. I was also honoured in 2019 to be awarded by the Society of Genealogists in London, England the Certificate of Recognition for “exceptional services to genealogy and one-name studies, promoting methodology, aims, processes and strategies”

logorI am the tutor for Pharos with responsibility for teaching the One-Name Studies courses.

Introduction to One-Name Studies typically runs three times a year. You can also download a copy of the course information sheet HERE. The next intakes for this course are:

4 February 2020, 2 June 2020 and 6 October 2020.

From 2020 I will be the tutor for the Pharos Advanced One-Name Studies which runs typically once a year, more frequently by arrangement. You can also download a copy of the course information sheet HERE.

The next intake for this course is 3 November 2020

In 2020 there will be a third Pharos One-Name Studies course, which will sit between the Introduction and Advanced courses, as it builds on the learning. The course, Practicalities of a One-Name Study will be available from 17 March 2020.

On this page you will find links to a series of posts that I have written about One-Name & Surname research.
