Chris Pomery's course sounds interesting. Not sure I would have enough time available, but it's tempting. Steven

I've just noticed that there are a lot of new courses listed on the Pharos Tutors website:

Quite a few are led by Guild members - Kirsty Gray on one-place genealogy, Chris Pomery on genetic genealogy and Guy Grannum on The National Archives catalogue. Has anyone tried any of the Pharos courses?

Yes, I think I can report some success with my Whitebread and Whitbread One-Name Study Group. I currently have 31 members, including about 8 new contacts. I have added an index to all of the different families known to me, with links from this to separate discussions for each family. I have added descendency charts and family tress for each, and through this I getting lots of new material. I am kept very busy with this site.

Yes I would be grateful if you could take it forward.

Cliff -

My understanding is that there is an intent to have a Society listing also, in which the Guild should figure.
I think having the Guild listed in the surname groups also is an excellent idea - would you like me to take this forward?
Comment by Clifford Kemball on August 15, 2009 at 1:22am
I have looked at the surname group listing and it is interesting to see that the Guild of One-Name Study group is not listing. Do you think it should be listed even though it is not a single surname group?
Comment by Clifford Kemball on August 15, 2009 at 1:00am
Can you add more than one location. I orginally set mine to "Worldwide". Then I changed it to "GOONS". Ideally I would like to use both.

Oh that! the Laws Family ONS group has been there since day one, Thanks Wendy

Surname groups are now a category in the groups drop down menu.
