This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the surname Dillard and its variants. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.


One Name Studies Explained

With One Name Studies it is the surname that is of interest, rather than the family tree of members of the same family with several different surnames. It does involve many of the same research skills and techniques as family history, and most one-namers are actively researching both their own family and their one-name study.

Usually people begin one name studies when they are stuck on part of their tree, and believe that if they were to collect all references they find to the surname then this will lead to a break-through. The one namer becomes an expert on his or her name, even if the name is part of apparently quite separate family groups.

One name studies can be quite intensive, but they can be immensely rewarding, both in their ability to offer new insights into the surname and in being able to assist other genealogists around the world.

One name researchers build up a unique understanding of their name and its significance both geographically and historically. As a recognized center of information on the name, they will also receive inquiries from, and exchange information with, WikiTree members who have an interest in the name. Over time, collaborators become the WikiTree experts on the name and make new friends.
