About the Hunter archive

The Guild of One-Name Studies (Member no. 7128) can store electronic records held by them, and today I started the new categories which I will be sharing here on my blog, but also adding to my Hunter Archive on the one-name.org website. As most of us family genealogists have notebooks, and I have to say I have so many I have decided it is time to go digital.

I like having notebooks (actual documents, paper copies of census, births, marriages and deaths) so I can look at them myself, but today I have decided to start scanning and downloading to the Guild.

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.
