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, brought together from various sources,  taken at this year’s three day event  (April 16-17-18)  held at the Birmingham NEC,  England.

This gallery shows images of the Guild Stand and some of the many Guild members who help other Genealogical organisations exhibiting at WDYTYA? Live, as well as members who were speakers at WDYTYA? Live.

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.
