I've just read an interesting and detailed report on the "Pomeroy Surname Reconstruction Project" by Chris Pomery. Chris put together the report to assist fellow Guild of One Name Study members who are considering DNA projects to complement their one-name studies. The report outlined his ONS results, benefits gained from running a ONS and lessons learned. Reading the report has given me a far better understanding of what I need to do with my own study. To start with, I think I waste a lot of time thinking about the ONS and collecting material willy-nilly instead of sorting and reporting on the material I already have. I've decided to set myself some goals, and by the end of July I hope to have achieved the following:
1. Description of the size of the Edenborough ONS.
2. A study history to date of the Edenborough ONS.
3. A report on the surname variants of the study.
