Overview & Purpose
A top-level look at the Study, why we undertook it, and how it fits
as part of the Guild of One-Name Studies

The Threlkeld One-Name Study is a global initiative that aims to research the genealogies, histories, and demographics of the ancient English surname Threlkeld and all related spellings. There are numerous variants of the Threlkeld name. Not only are they welcome, but they are in fact essential to meet some of our objectives.

We charge nothing to participate, require no effort or time commitment, and offer several ways to get involved. Website registrants will be free to access all areas of the site—including our Assets & Archives library and the ability to upload files—and will be able to have a personal profile to help connect with cousins and other researchers. There are also varied levels of active involvement you can read about in the section on How to Participate.

Whether you wish to work only on your own Threlkeld line, join the discussion on the Threlkeld Forum, or even engage in a research project, all types of active participation are highly valued...and come with everyone's gratitude for growing our global body of knowledge.

Our vision: To be the global clearing house for research of our ancestral Threlkeld surname.

Our mission: To provide researchers with a free, collaborative, curated venue focused on growing and improving the body of knowledge about origins, histories, genealogies, and demographics of the surname Threlkeld and all related variants.
