Guild Webinar Series 2018 New Year – New Projects Why webinars? In our surveys (both the geographic survey and the USA member survey) you told us you wanted to learn more about methodology and be able to ask questions or get tips on how others go about their studies. In 2018 we focussed on just that so there should be something for everyone, whether you are new to surname research and one-name studies OR an old hand. We also hope this webinar series will introduce the larger genealogy and family history community to the wonderful world of surname research! These webinars were free and open to the public – so members and non-members alike were welcome. Non-members were able to attend the webinar live and/or watch the recording for one week after the webinar broadcast. After that, the recordings went behind the member pay wall, as a member’s only benefit (with the exception of the first webinar What We Do – An Introduction to One-Name Studies which will always be available). 2018 Guild Webinar Series Use links to view information about and watch recordings of past webinars (The YouTube recording will be added to information page after the live event and can be watched here on the Website).
