There are many people who have generously shared their trees, information and knowledge with me since I first started out on this journey. I want to thank you all for that generosity and the interest you have shown in the project.

I would also like to thank all the volunteers within the Guild of One Name Studies who give freely of their time to organise seminars/conferences and contribute to the Guild WIKI. They have contributed greatly to my understanding of good research practice and improved my technical skills in using spreadsheets, understanding DNA etc., dramatically.

Mention must also be made regarding the Members Website Project team who have provided the inspiration and practical support to get this site up and running as well as giving me peace of mind that the work will be preserved for the future.
