A is for About the Guild Posted 1 April 2017 by Tessa Keough What are the top 6 things to know about the Guild? We are a worldwide organization with over 2,700 members in 30 countries. We are a registered charity and take our status seriously by providing education and assistance to members and non-members alike. The materials freely available at our website about the methodology of one-name studies and the use of DNA studies with surname research is impressive. The majority of our members have a registered study, but it is not a requirement. Anyone interested in surnames and one-name studies is welcome to join us. Our most recent program, the Members’ Website Project, helps members host and preserve their one-name studies – it’s a huge hit! What do you think others should know about the Guild?
