About the Project
The Joyner Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Joyner 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 Joyner 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 Joyners), by time period (18th Century Joyners), or by topic (Joyner DNA, Joyner Occupations, Joyner 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.

to enable easy identification of distinct family lines, to identify and check against potential sources of Joyner /Joiner genealogical records, and to identify particular profiles and family lines that need to be worked on.
In broader terms, the Key Objectives of the Joyner Name Study, are to:-
- Achieve greater accuracy for the Joyner/Joiner genealogy and
- Make Joyner/Joiner genealogy more transparent and accessible
and we will attempt to do this by:-
- Reviewing and updating all existing Joyner/Joiner profiles (annually if possible),
- Identifying Joyner clans and increase their length, depth and width,
- Attempting to connect unconnected profiles to their Joyner clan, and
- Identifying and promoting Joyner/Joiner profiles that have interesting biographies.
I've had an interest in how Joyner/Joiner surnamed families do or do not link up so I've taken the plunge and started a Joyner/Joiner surname study here on wikitree. My personal priorities are focused by the order of these geographic boundaries:-
- England (including London, Hampshire, Dorset, and Kent)
- Australia and
- United States of America.
My home state of Queensland has 3 longstanding but distinct Joyner family lines which each migrated here from different points of England. Descendants of those first Joyner immigrants have then spread around Australia. My Dorset Joyner ancestors may be related to the Bere Regis, Dorset ancestors of a signficant USA Joyner family line. You may be focused on these or other geographic locations but your contributions may find links to Joyner/Joiner families all over the world.
