Guild of One-Name Studies
One-name studies, Genealogy
Category: 1 - A study where research using core genealogical datasets and transcriptions is in its early stages.
Contact: Mr Martin Etherton
I've been interested in genealogy since 2004. As the Etherton surname was reasonably uncommon, I had spent most of my time researching this line. During that time I had accumulated quite a mish-mash of data regarding the name. Unfortunately, after progressing five generations I came up against my own brick-wall. I then came across the one-name study organisation. I thought it might be a good idea to begin a one-name study project for the Etherton surname. This would enable me to put some use to the data I had already accumulated, as well as allowing me to indulge myself in my new found hobby. Ultimately I am hoping that it might also lead to the missing link which will enable me to overcome my own brick wall. But that's a long way down the line at this moment !
Aims of Study
In no particular order of importance these are what I consider some of the fundamental aims I would like to achieve during this study. Some would be classed as short and some as long term.
The Etherton's are distributed across the world in the following numbers.
Births - 1837 - 2001
Marriages - 1837 - 2001
Deaths - 1837 - 2001
