A one-name study is the study of a particular surname (or surnames where it has variants), which researches and documents all persons bearing that surname, as distinct from researching all the ancestors or descendants of one person. A study can be confined to a country, or sometimes to a state, province or UK county, but surnames registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies are researched and documented on a worldwide basis.

The surname HALSTED and its variants were originally registered with the Guild in 1994 and subsequently transferred into the name of the Secretary of the Halsted Trust. Registration, as Member Number 4742, now covers the following surnames which include the known variants:
