Getting active again

Things have been picking up again recently. Several new Parry researchers have contacted me and a couple of others, who hadn’t been in touch for a while, have also written to send me information. Whilst life is still busy in other areas, it has reminded me just how much I enjoy working on the One-Name Study.

It's the Guild’s AGM and Conference this weekend. The first talk is by John Hanson and entitled, “Researching and Recording a Large One-Name Study”. Yes, I know that’s what I am already doing – but it sounds like a good opportunity to review where things are at and to get a kick-start back into activity.


  1. I'm glad you're getting active again. I've just joined the Guild and am thinking about doing my ONS but I need to consider it seriously before I commit.

    Before I came across your ONS website I had no idea that the Guild existed or what a fantastic resource it is. So thank you, and if I do go down the ONS route you'll be getting full blame!

  2. Thanks, Carole. I'm really pleased to hear that you've joined the Guild. I was a member for several years before registering my surname - I certainly don't regret doing so but, yes, it is sensible to check out what you're taking on first.
