We like to show off our helpful team of volunteers and display photos of events where they have volunteered to man and assist on the Guild Stand in order to promote the Guild.

Below are some photos from the Hampshire Genealogical Society’s  Open Day of 12 October 2014, held at Everest Community Acadamy, Basingstoke, England.

The Guild attends many Family History events across the globe displaying material and information about the Guild, our registered one-name studies and surnames in general.

At some events the software program Surname Atlas (which provides distribution maps of surnames extracted from the England, Scotland and Wales 1881 census data) is demonstrated and this can help the visitor pinpoint the origins of their surname of interest.

Enquirers about one-name studies registered with the Guild are given our member’s contact details. We often assist visitors with general genealogical queries and help break down their brick walls, which is much appreciated.
