Guild of One-Name Studies
One-name studies, Genealogy
The Dewing One-Name Study was registered in 2016. I started my research back in the 1960's. This was back with pen and paper and slow mail, taking months to access information. Now with the internet things are much faster and more info is available online.
The Dewing name traces to the English area of Norfolk, but word has it as being Huguenot in origin. One of the earliest magazines I looked at referenced the name as Huguenot, but I am unable at present to confirm this again.
