One Name Studies Project: request your 2020 Name Study here! [DO NOT USE] [closed]

Would you like to start a Name Study for a surname in 2020?  Sign up below (answer, don't comment) and Ros will create the page for you and add you as the manager.  If you do not already have it, you will be awarded the One Name Studies Project Member badge.

Check here: is there one for your name already?

The three requirements are: 
1) You have been on WikiTree for 30 days 
2) You have signed the Honor Code 
3) You have made 100 or more contributions (not just G2G points)

Read more about the project here: 
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Name_Studies

Please note when requesting redirects to variants: There can only be three spellings of the surname per Study, and one of them must be the name itself (such as Haywood, Heywood, and Hayward for the Haywood Name Study).  This is set due to limitations of the creation form plus lack of manpower.

Remember to hit 'ANSWER', not 'comment', nor 'reply'

Ros,

I find myself so busy with the Fritz name study as I am including Fritz's from numerous countries, which takes considerably more time.  I am therefore, going to have to cancel my request for the Mayne study.  This will enable someone else to have it.  Then at sometime in the future I will be able to assist them.

Thank you for letting me know.  Do you wish to remain on the Trusted List, or be removed altogether?
What is the purpose of the ONS? What would I be expected to do? Is there a help sheet or FAQ or other resources I can review before I commit?
A One Name Study is a genealogy project which focuses on a single surname.  Its coverage is usually worldwide.

You may like to look at the Project page here:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:One_Name_Studies

and the FAQ page here:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:One_Name_Studies_FAQ_Page

Here is my Haywood Name Study for you to have a look at:

Hi Ros; I have a Archie Lee Tubbs that I'm updating and I checked in Categories to see if there's a Tubbs Name Study and there is Tubbs Name Study so I can add the category but the sticker in the bio comes out red. Any ideas?

The Tubbs Name Study is currently non-operational; therefore, its sticker/category cannot be used.  It is available to adopt (see its categories), but you already have the maximum number of Name Studies, so you cannot take it on.

Sorry.

Hi Ros,
I would like a Blackwell surname project.
The Blackwells of Derbyshire would just be one branch,
Hopefully others will help on the other branches.
And I have lots of many notes on many branches.

I am still listed as the profile manager; I do not have your email address to put you on the Trusted List.  So that you avoid spam, do not put it on this forum.  Instead, send me a Trusted List request from your Study; then I will have your address and can complete the creation.

Chasing some birth family and this surname keeps popping up:  Zbin

In various census and older records, various spellings are different (Sbin, Cben, Czbin, et al) but Zbin seems to be what most alive today are using nowadays.  The line I am chasing is from current Czech Republic, but when they emigrated, it would have been known as Austro-Hungarian Empire.
by Jim Lindsey G2G Crew (600 points)
So are you requesting a Zbin Name Study, as you did not specify this?

Unfortunately, you are not yet eligible for a Name Study - one of the requirements is that you have made 100+ contributions, and you have made 34.  Look forward to seeing you again!

Hi Ros,

I am relatively new to WikiTree, but I am liking what I see.  I notice that there is no MURISON name study, so I would like to - somewhat hesitantly - put my name forward to possibly lead one.

The main reason I am hesitant is that, as I look through the discussions on this and other G2G threads, there are whole bunch of things being regularly thrown around that I don't understand (yet).

Hi Ross,

I would like to start a Prentice one name study with the variants Prentiss and Prentis.  Recently there have been new profiles created for these surnames in Scotland and Australia so linking the family on three continents would be awesome!  Hey Scott @Prentice-1188 would you like to partner on this?

Request consideration to be the focal point for a "One Name Study"  for: Schuerger (Schürger).

Can a ONS be applied to both the German and the American versions of our name?

Please advise as to how to proceed.

Cheers.

Joe - the way you see how many profiles you manage is on your Watchlist. Go up to the dropdown menu 'My WikiTree' (top right) and scroll down until you see 'Watchlist'.  The ones with a little 'M' next to them are ones you manage.  If they don't have an 'M', you are on the Trusted List only.

Hi Ros, I'm interested in setting up a Golder name study. We know we are an offshoot of the Golden and Goulding surnames. Is there a way to associate or "piggyback" with associated names?

Thanks!! [[Golder-180|Amy Golder-Cooper]]
by Amy Golder-Cooper G2G6 (6.6k points)
What I would suggest is that I set up a Golder Name Study for you and you link to the genealogy pages of those names from your main freespace page i.e.
https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/GOLDEN
https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/GOULDING

as opposed to counting them as variants - because then all three surnames would get mixed together on your category page and it would be quite difficult to extract them if somebody else set up a Name Study with one of those names.

Sound OK?
