Guild of One Name Studies Seminar in Telford
On Saturday 15th February I attended The Guild of One Name Studies seminar entitled One Name Studies: The Next Generation.
I was fascinated by how a younger generation of One Namers, all the speakers were under the age of 40, were using a different variety of media to collect and store their data. The youngest speaker, who was only 16 years of age, explained how she had used information that she had collected to write a fictional story about a real member of her family to gain credit towards one of her qualifications.
I really enjoyed my day out and each speaker motivated me to explored other types of media when collecting data.
