I’m an amateur genealogist, I don’t profess to be an expert but I try to be diligent in my research efforts. I enjoy dabbling with CurryAus, my Surname Study, because it gives my brain cells a real workout as I try to merge the jigsaw of all the Curry records I find into a coherent collection of family trees.
It was a pleasant surprise when I was invited to join two professionals and Surname Study experts in a panel presentation, Surname Studies – the why, the how and much more!, at THE Genealogy Show 2019 in Birmingham in June.
I am sure that I will learn more from fellow panelists, Kirsty Gray, Founder of the Surname Society and Janet Few, The History Interpreter, than I will contribute to the session. I aim to enthuse a few beginners to start up a surname study and share some tips that rookie surname studiers can employ as they start out on their Surname journeys.
Whether you are already undertaking a Surname Study or you just want to know the whys and hows of Surname Studies I can promise that this will be a lively and entertaining session.
