One Name Studies: Questions you always wanted to ask

All One Name Studiers know about the ONS Project page:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Name_Studies

And most One Name Studiers know about the ONS Category page:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:One_Name_Studies

But did you know there is also an ONS FAQ page (Frequently Asked Questions)?
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:One_Name_Studies_FAQ_Page

The questions run from 'What is a one name study?' through 'Should I include females and adoptees?' to 'Are there examples of one name studies on Wikitree?' and many more.

Take a look! The question which you had been wondering about may just be answered there!

I’d like to do more on my maiden name Buxton. I don’t see it on the one name studies. I’d like to add it and see if I can get past my brick wall with other helpers.

Thanks

Hi Ros,

In the text of your post above, you give the link to the Category page when you are describing the FAQ page.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:One_Name_Studies_FAQ_Page

Plus, you should also mention that the FAQ page can be navigated to from the Project page too. That way people just need to remember to go to the Project page, and they can find the FAQ from there.

Thanks for spotting that! (although of course the reader could go to it from the dark green bold link just beneath LOL)

I did not say it could also be navigated to from the ONS Project page because I wanted to emphasise that it could stand alone, not be reduced to a mere link from another page.
I always like to point out that there is "one stop shopping". The Project page has everything you need. You can find the Category from there, the FAQ from there, and all there resources you need. That way people don't have to remember multiple resources, write them down or bookmark them. Just go to the Project and one can find everything from there.

Having trouble posting I would like to say the One name Study of surname FISHWICK is owned by Virginia Gretton.

The Fishwick One Name Study, run by Virginia Gretton, is part of the Guild of One Name Studies.  It is not a WikiTree Study.  Or did you wish to request one? in which case, you need to sign up here:
