Within it's membership, the Guild of One-Name Studies has a wealth of knowledge and expertise - both about One-Name Studies and broader genealogy topics and about general social, economic and architectural history. Some of our members do talks in their local areas or on a larger stage, and are willing to (and do!) contribute to events across the world. These members have been listed below, along with their specialisms.

If you would like to have someone speak at your event, please contact the Guild's Education Liaison Officer at education@one-name.org to discuss your requirements or contact the member directly.
