One month a GOON

Today marks my one-month 'anniversary' of being a GOON.  The dictionary describes a goon as 'a stupid or deliberately foolish person'.  Yes, some would say that describes me perfectly!  But I am a particular kind of goon.  I now belong to the Guild of One-Name Studies; the surname I have elected to study is MURCH.

Indeed, I am already beginning to think I was a 'stupid or deliberately foolish person' to take this one-name study on.  But this is overshadowed by the excitement I feel; the anticipation of great things to come.

Murch One-Name Study

[Most of this is reposted from my new blog]

I've done it!  I've taken the first step - or can it be called a giant leap?  I have been researching my own family tree for 37 years, and now I am moving to another level.

Today I became a member of the Guild of One-Name Studies and registered the surname MURCH as the one I am going to research - possibly for the next 37 years.  Oh, that doesn't mean I am going to ignore the names in my own ancestry, but this is branching out in a different way.

A One-Name Study studies - well, one name.  Not a given name like John or Elizabeth, but a surname.  And it doesn't limit itself to one place, either, such as all the John MURCHes in a tiny village in a corner of one county in one country. No, I will be looking for MURCHes everywhere - and I mean everywhere.  As in 'worldwide' everywhere.

*hops from foot to foot in excitement*
