Webinar Tonight: What’s In a Name? Every Surname Tells a Story

Surnames tell a fascinating story about our ancestors’ past. From origin to meaning, migration to frequency, come learn how to find and include that story in your own family history.

Tessa Keough is a genealogist in transition (not her day job). She works on her own family history and special projects. These include a one-place study in Newfoundland, a one-name study of the Keough surname, a Google+ community (Legacy Virtual Users’ Group), and a YouTube channel (TessaWatch). Tessa blogs at The Keough Corner and Scandia Musings. She contributes to Worldwide Genealogy and the May I Introduce To You feature at Geneabloggers.

The seminar begins at 6:00pm Pacific time – 9:00pm Eastern.
