About the Project
The Dunn Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Dunn name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Dunn name.
As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Dunns), by time period (18th Century Dunns), or by topic (Dunn DNA, Dunn Occupations, Dunn Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Sources: Provide sources for all unsorced Dunn profiles. Sources should be reliable and complient with wikitree source standards. Find A Grave profiles are not considered a source, unless a photo of the gravestone is attatched to the profile. Find A Grave profiles should fall under the See Also heading of the Sources section of each profile. Public family trees are not considered a source. This includes, Ancestry, MyHeritage, Family Search, Geni, and any other public genealogical software. Published family genealogy books may be considered a source, if no other source is found on a particular subject. Though, be weary of the information provided, the writer of that book may have had false information. Please DO NOT add Dunn profiles to this name study if they are unsourced. Source the profile first, then add them to the corresponding name study category.
Biographies: Provide detailed biographies for all Dunn profiles. Use the sources that are provided on the profiles to help make a biography for a Dunn profile.
Catrgories: Place Dunn profiles in corresponding regional and family group Dunn categories.
Here are some of the current research pages included in the study. I'll be working on them, and could use your help!
