About This Website

Launched on St. David's Day - 1st March 1996. An appropriate day (that of the Patron Saint of Wales) to launch this site, bearing in mind the strong Welsh connections of the name.

Starting with a focus on the author's family tree, it has now evolved into the website for the Skyrm(e) One-Name Study

Go to the website page for information about its evolution and a summary of updates.

About this One-Name Study

The objectives of this study are to research, record and share information on the origins, distribution, family histories, historical and geographic contexts of people with the surname Skyrme, Skyrm and variants world-wide. To achieve this a wide range of research resources is being used and will be shared through uploading datasets and trees to this website.

More details about the process of research (using the '7 pillars') will be found on the ONS section of this website.
