Guild of one-name studies

Guild Registered Societies

The Guild of One-Name Studies is keen to encourage societies that focus on a surname. Only individuals can become Guild members but societies can enjoy the benefits of membership by appointing a Society Representative. He or she needs to
become a Guild member on their behalf and register the surname as a one-name study and take responsibility for it.

All surnames and Society Representatives are included in the list of surnames registered with the Guild. Societies are also listed in the first section of the annual Register and on this page. The Society Representative can access all the research, publicity, and preservation tools of the Guild. These include a study alias email and a hosted and preserved website for the society.

Other members of the society can join the Guild as Study Associates.

I have been researching my family tree for over thirty-three years and a member of Clan Hunter. In 2015 I registered the surname Hunter with the Guild of One-Name Studies and this blog will be my goal to share my research, photos, and as the clan's travel agent 2017 I will be adding our Clan Hunter Gathering 2017 which was very special because our Clan Hunter's 30th Laird participated in the opening of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle August 5th, 10:30 p.m. with her clansmen. Find A Grave contributor #47833985 Being a travel agent since 1991 I am a SCOTSagent, BRITagent, and at the present have two group tours to Scotland in 2017. One is a Clan Hunter Gathering at Hunterston Castle given by Madam Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, 30th Laird of Clan Hunter.
