The following announcement was written by the Guild of One-Name Studies:
The Guild of One-Name Studies and Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd are pleased to announce the continuation of a five week introductory course on One-Name Studies, starting 20th January 2011. The online course is a guide and introduction to One-Name Studies, run by online genealogy specialists Pharos Tutors assisted by the considerable experience of the Guild of One-Name Studies, probably the most dedicated group of genealogists in the world.
The course covers surnames and their history; core records needed for one-name studies; the analyses of one-name data and all the practical aspects of running a one-name study.
Prospective students can pay and enrol via the Pharos website – www.pharostutors.com at a price of £43.99. The Guild of One-Name Studies will also be offering free membership to the Guild for the remainder of the financial year for all non-Guild members who sign up for this course.
The course is suitable for all genealogists who have an interesting or unusual surname, or who wish to research their surname in greater depth. It will also be of significant interest to existing one-namers.
