}}The Guild of One-Name Studies is a charitable organisation dedicated to promoting the public understanding of one-name studies and the preservation and accessibility of the resultant information. Founded in 1979 in Britain, the Guild has members all over the world, and is widely recognised as a centre of excellence in one-name studies. A one-name study is a project researching facts about a surname and all the people who have held it, as opposed to a particular pedigree (the ancestors of one person) or descendancy (the descendants of one person or couple). The Guild brings together those with an interest in traditional documentary one-name studies and other forms of surname study such as DNA projects.  
  
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.
