The fall edition of the FHF REALLY USEFUL Family History show is set for November 12-13. Tickets are now on sale for £10, a superb value.
I am pleased to say that I will be giving a talk at the show, titled Surname Origins: Why? When? Why then?
Surname usage dates back to the late Middle Ages, around the fourteenth century. Why did it start then? Was it in response to political or societal shift, coincidentally across much of Europe, or was it because of something else? We will explore some of the history and reasons for the adoption and use of surnames.
