One-Name Studies

Inevitably, as we try to hunt down our ancestors, we come across people bearing the surname we’re seeking, but who are not identifiably related to us. Some people simply discard these finds. I hate to do that, particularly for a relatively uncommon surname, since I am hopeful of finding a connection in the future. My research on the GRADWELL line has been somewhat frustrating because there are a whole lot of them in an area far removed from where mine are known to have lived. My solution is to create a one-name study project. Now I can systematically research the name and maintain my research for future connections and for others interested in the name.
