February 2019 Webinar
Introduction to a Surname Study
- Presenter: Julie Goucher
- Date: Tuesday, February 19, 2019
- Time: 7:00 PM CST
- Webinar Description: In this presentation we will explore what a Surname study is and then look at the approaches to begin and construct a study. Identifying the likely size of such a study, geographical distribution of the surname and where to look to understand the history of surnames. We then move onto the practical elements of a study, where to keep data, how to gather it nad feature some of the "quick wins". We then explore analysing and synthising the data gathered. We discuss sharing, advertising and promoting the study so that you can hopefully connect with others and then focus on
incorporating DNA projects into a surname project as another research tool.
