The Guild of One-Name Studies promotes research on all instances of a surname "and its variants" rather than the ancestors or descendants of one person.

The Guild of One-Name Studies encourages a different approach than many genealogists might consider for their research. This unique approach provides an excellent solution to some of the brick wall situations family historians find themselves in with their research.

Be sure to take advantage of the free search available on their home page to see if the surnames you are searching may be part of someone's one-name study.

The educational benefits of becoming a member of this society are exceptional even for those who do not start their own one-name study. Some of the benefits of joining the Guild of One-Name Studies include but are not limited to:
