2018 Webinar Series – No 6 Sharing the Joy with Bob Cumberbatch & Paul Howes This is the sixth webinar in the Guild’s 2018 ten-part webinar series. Sharing the Joy provides an overview of how two Guild members share their research, family reconstructions, and stories (their studies) with the world. Whether you are just beginning your one-name study or you are years in, there are many things you can do to share your study – newsletters, blogs, social media posts and pages, websites, surname family trees on free and subscription websites, articles, and events & reunions. While there are many approaches to publicizing your study, learning how others “do it” is helpful in deciding what approach(es) you might want to take. Come learn how Bob Cumberbatch and Paul Howes each publicize their one-name studies – the resources they use, the offline and online programs and apps they take advantage of, and how they encourage others to assist them or provide data – those in the genealogy community and simply those who happen to share the same surname. Bob Cumberbatch has been working on his Cumberbatch one-name study for almost 20 years. His study has two origins – Cheshire, England and Barbados. Bob began by collecting data sets and moved on to reconstructing families. His Cumberbatch one-name study uses a variety of methods to get the word out and he puts his data, family reconstructions, and stories on his website. In addition to his study, Bob previously served on Committee, he currently provides the recording and editing services for Guild conferences and seminars, and in 2016 he received the Guild’s Master Craftsman Award. Paul Howes began his one-name at the same time the internet began to make family history research easier and less costly for the general public. His one-name study has, even in its early stages, focused on family reconstructions and publishing data and stories to encourage interest and sharing among all those with the Howes surname. His Howes one-name study database has over 130,000 individuals in reconstructed families. Paul just stepped down from Committee in March, where he served as Chairman. This year Paul received the Guild’s Master Craftsman Award.
