What is a One-Name Study and Why Do One? Free webinar by Kirsty Gray now online for limited time

LogowhiteThe recording of today's brilliant webinar, "What is a One-Name Study and Why Do One?" by Kirsty Gray is now online to view for free for a limited time. You will enjoy an entirely new side of genealogy while you learn from Kirsty's enjoyable presentation style! A few comments from our viewers:

  • Wow - what a pleasant surprise! I didn't expect much from this topic, but this turned out to be one of the most interesting learning experiences that I've encountered in a long time. A very different and interesting perspective and very professionally and pleasantly presented. Thanks you!
  • A totally new look at a family name. This study would probably open a new avenue of finding where your family originated from, especially if you are facing a roadblock of where to search.
  • Didn't think there would be much info applicable to my research, but Kirsty and LegacyWebinars have opened my eyes to another avenue of research. Kirsty is an excellent speaker with a well-organized and well-thought-out presentation- thank you!
  • From time to time Legacy Family Tree Webinars introduces me to a whole new area of genealogical research; this happened today, and it pleases me a lot. This was most interesting. Thank you.
