From The Guild of One Name Studies
A One-Name Study (ONS) is a project researching all occurrences of a surname, as opposed to a particular pedigree (ancestors of one person) or descendancy (descendants of one person or couple).
Further information is available on their website.
There are very few, if any, One-Name Studies about Latvian surnames. Therefore, the purpose of this board is to bring together people who wish to work together on creating some for Latvian surnames.
*NOTE: Discovering Latvian Roots is not affiliated with the Guild of One-Name Studies or any of the One-Name Study participants, except for where noted, we simply support creating One-Name Studies for Latvian surnames.
