News – February 2017

February news late in March isn’t good but better late than never.

Main activity has been recording and start to check out the 138 potentially useful web sites noted from my short Genealogy course with Futurelearn (

I’ve also generated the set of family trees now added to onenamechadbourne. Hopefully this will provide a useful summary of our family history without the needed to transfer a GEDCOM file. I’ll be seeking the views of IT-knowledgeable colleagues at the Guild of One Name Studies Annual Conference later this month. I’ll report back.

I’ll also be seeking advice on the DNA analysis from last year as I haven’t progressed things since joining the Chadbourne DNA Study Group.
