ELDER One-Name Study News

Today I received my print copy of "Journal of One-Name Studies,"
Vol. 10 #9, 2011, published in London, England.
I've paid my 2011 dues online and reviewed my ELDER
One-Name Webpage posted on their server

The Chairman's article highlighted activities for new members,
especially for USA and others who need online connections
with experienced members (mostly UK members).
Mentors will be be available for personal queries,
so I hope to sign up to ask for that service.
Another service announced is a special link to the free LDS database FamilySearch.org,
where search results will include a direction to any Surnames entered on
ONE-NAME STUDY webpages, like ELDER!!
Also, some good DNA success stories are told in this issue,
including one by Katherine Hope Borges,
host of the oldest "Scotland DNA Chart" online.

Always looking for more Scotland connections!
