What is a Surname Study?

Information Session
April 30, 2016
2:00 - 3:30 pm
33 Ochterloney Street, Suite 100, Dartmouth, NS

The Guild of One Name Studies has members across the world who are registered to study one name. This type of study is defined as, "Researching the genealogy and family history of all persons with a given surname, or a group of related surnames, as opposed to researching a particular pedigree (the ancestors of one person) or specific descendancy (the descendants of one person or one couple). "

Join Peggy Homans Chapman, Guild Representative for Canada East (one-name.org) and Lois Perry, local member of the Guild, to learn about why one undertakes such a study, what the approach is, how to register your study and ultimately, how to publicise it.

Light refreshments will be served. While admission is free, donations are welcome. Location is accessible. Bring a friend!
 

Annual General Meeting

Join us at our Annual General Meeting on May 14 2016
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
33 Ochterloney Street, Suite 100, Darmouth, NS
Speaker:  Sara Beanlands, MA
 
There will be a short AGM followed by a talk by Sara Beanlands. Sara will be discussing the major archaeological study she carried out on a farm in the rural community of Poplar Grove that contains evidence of Pre-Deportation Acadian and early Planter occupation. The project offered a unique opportunity to explore the cultural interface of an Acadian/Planter settlement in Nova Scotia. Members of the public who participated in the program included direct descendants of both the original Acadian and Planter families who occupied the site.
 


All GANS operations are carried out by volunteers, including publications, membership renewals, workshops and website maintenance. Your patience is appreciated, when expecting responses to queries.
