Contact: Ms Christine Dyos
Like many one name studies mine started as a genealogical one back in 1983 and I have been able to trace my own family line back to approx. 1731. Because of the unique Dyos spelling I have collected data on every instance of the name and in doing so, have found that 80% are related to me. So without intending to do so I had already started a one-name study. I then took the leap to becoming a formal one name study and registered with GOONS in 2009.
I work full time and am restricted in the amount of time I can devote to this passion, but do when possible get to visit the necessary archives I need to access for information which is not web based, or for checking purposes. But most of all I just love receiving contact from other Dyos members.
