GOONS Seminars and Conferences

Seminars and Conferences:
21st November 2009
"Finding Further One-Name Sources
TNA, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU.

This seminar introduces a variety of less familiar sources at the National Archives, Kew, aiming to shine a light on less used records of interest to One-Name Studies. Topics include Hearth Tax, Sequestration Papers, Chancery databases, and finding aids. We have also arranged a behind-the-scenes tour."

from my email:-
Family History Listers,

The Guild of One-Name Studies is the worldwide centre of excellence in one-name studies, and promotes the interests of both individuals and groups who are engaged in them. Through its programme of activities it provides the means to share, exchange and publish information about one-name studies. It also encourages and assists those interested in one-name studies by means of conferences, seminars, and many other activities and projects.

This is to remind you, we are a holding our last seminar for the year at The National Archives, on Saturday, 21st November 2009.

The seminar "One-Name Sources at TNA", which we are sure we will be of interest, will cover: The Hearth Tax - Dave Annal; Civil War Sequestration Papers - Adrian Ailes; Chancery Records - Amanda Bevan; and Certificates of Residence - Michelle Hockley.

There is also available, a behind the scenes tour with very limited capacity. We are already received a lot of interest and remaining spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Also to mention while Tea and Coffee will be provided, as with previous events at the National Archive, lunch is not included. You can either purchase lunch from the Cafeteria or bring your own.

Further details are shown on the booking form, which is available on the Guild website: under the 'Events' tab.

For any queries or for a mailed copy of the application form, the Guild Helpdesk telephone 0800 011 2182 will be able to advise.

Thank you very much

Rod Clayburn
Secretary, Seminar Sub-Committee,
Guild of One-Name Studies
