The second in the Guild's Webinar Series - 7 Pillars Approach
In this session Debbie Kennett will provide an overview of the history and distribution of surnames as well as an overview of the methodology of a one-name study. The one-name study approach can sometimes provide breakthroughs that would not be possible by restricting research to your own family tree. Genealogists can make a major contribution to the field of surname research. Come learn more about the joy of surnames.
