Sponsored by Coat of Arms as borne by Sir Lawrence William HALSTED, KCB - 1826 the Halsted Trust

This seminar is directed at new members and those interested in joining the Guild, with more emphasis on what an ONS entails and less on the workings of the Guild. We intend to expand on methodology in One-Name Studies, so this may also provide a useful update on new methods and facilities for established members. It is planned to have a special Questions and Answers session with specialists given advance notice of questions in order that they may research a deeper answer.
