In Pursuit of Lot's. Using Forenames To Build the Family Tree.
All too often we accept given names without much thought about their choice. But a new or changed pattern of naming can be an important event to consider. In this session, the speaker demonstrates how paying more attention to the usual and unusual naming patterns within the family can:

- Provide a shortcut to tracking individual families within the ancestral family

- Demonstrate migration patterns of the ancestral and the collateral family within the UK and globally

- Provide evidence of a link to a significant family event that triggered the introduction of the unusual surname
