A worldwide group of experienced genealogists who focus on single surname studies are considering setting up a society to meet the needs of researchers in the world of family history and genealogy as it evolves in the 21st century.
We would like your views on the viability of creating a society and whether you would be interested in joining as a founder member.
Our current thinking:
- A truly worldwide society that ensures its practices meet the needs of all members
- Fully collaborative studies where more than one individual can research a surname
- Full membership available to individuals and surname associations
- Limited studies where research of a surname is restricted to a particular area or country, as well as worldwide studies
