Guild of One-Name Studies: Medieval and Early Modern Records seminar

Videos from this recent Guild of One-Name Studies event are now available on YouTube

George Redmonds' leads off with "The way forward in surname studies."  If you thought just about everything there is to know about surnames is known think again. The talk is given without a single slide.

England's Immigrants 1330-1550 seemed promising but technical issues make it virtually unlistenable.

Wakefield Court Rolls - seven centuries of evidence for family history, by Sylvia Thomas explores the amazing content of this important source for the manor, and illustrates what might be, or might have been, available elsewhere.

Cause Papers in the Diocesan Courts of the Archbishopric of York: 1300 to 1858, given by Chris Webb is entertaining as well as informative.
