As #4600 joining in 2006, the Guild of one-name Studies has been a very beneficial organization to belong to if you are interested in one name studies. I study my parent's families - Blake and Pincombe. Blake is of course very large (actually only large by the criteria) and Pincombe medium. I was studying Siderfin but gave the study to my cousin Mark Siderfin who lives in England and much closer to record offices than I am. Siderfin is a rather small study.
