The Guild of One Name Studies




In November 2002 we decided to register our Interest in the surname


Shapcott


with the “Guild of One-Name Studies”


the premier international organisation for people who have an interest in One-Name Studies.


Our Membership reference is # 4023


This association is also sometimes known as the “GOONS” or simply “The Guild”.


The Guild of One Name Studies was founded in September, 1979


to advance the education of the public in the study of genealogy and family history


of persons with the same surname and its variants


and to promote the publication and preservation of the resultant data,


and to maximise its accessibility to interested members of the public.


The Guild is registered as a charity in England and Wales,

its registration number being 802048.


Its main charitable objectives are:


a) to advance the education of the public in one-name studies


b) to promote the preservation and publication of the resultant data,


and to maximise its accessibility to interested members of the public.
