Tessa Keough is an attorney by profession and a genealogist by avocation. She takes advantage of 21st century technology to work on her own family history as well as engage in specialized projects. These projects include a one-name study of her surname Keough and one-place study of a community in Newfoundland.

Tessa believes in giving back to the genealogy community and does so through the Guild of One-Name Studies, her Legacy Virtual Users’ Group Community on Google+, her YouTube channel TessaWatch, and several local genealogy and historical societies. She also writes for genealogy publications and presents at webinars, seminars, and conferences. 

Waves of Migration: Landing on the Shores of Canada and United States 

As your one-name study travels the world, chances are good that at some point your surname will land on the shores of North America. Peggy and Tessa will identify the ports in two of the largest countries in North America and explore the resources and records that will assist you as you extend your one-name study to North America.

Tessa will be delivering a pre-recorded presentation at the Guild of One-Name Studies conference on Sunday 2nd April 2017 with Peggy Chapman. Non-members are welcome and booking is currently still open.

Presentations will be available to Guild members after the event.
