How Understanding & Researching European Surnames Can Help Your Genealogical Research
- Presenter: Julie Goucher
- Date: Tuesday, February 20, 2018
- Time: 7:00 PM CST
- Webinar Description: We begin with an explanation of what a surname study is before covering what might be the catalyst for a study and why such a study might be a resourceful way to research. We then explore the key research methods for exploring European surnames and how they can help when researching in Europe and breaking down brick walls. We explore how to collaborate and undertake analysis of the data and look at surname variants and deviants and if they are an important part of European surname research. We then focus on surname distribution maps and the part they play in understanding surnames in Europe. In the last segments of the presentation we explore promotion of our European surnames so connection can be made with others, the use of social media and DNA surname projects.
