Brand New Online Course: Introduction to One-Name Studies

The following press release is posted for information.

The Guild of One-Name Studies and Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd are pleased to announce a brand new five week introductory course on One-Name Studies, starting 27th April 2009. This is the first course of its kind, either online or in the classroom. The new online course will be 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 £42.99. 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.

Helen Osborn, Managing Director of Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd, said today

“We were delighted to be approached by the Guild who share our vision for genealogy education and we look forward to working with them on this and future projects.”


Cliff Kemball, Guild Treasurer & project mentor for Pharos courses, said today

“The availability of this introductory course on One-Name Studies is a significant development in the Guild’s aim to increase the facilities available to its members and in its charitable aim of advancing the education of the public in one-name studies”
