Hello again. We have added a new page of information about the meaning and origin of the name Goodwin.
As you can imagine, depending on the source of the information, there can be a different meaning.
We have provided a list of meanings that we have located on the Origins page found under the About menu tab. Or click here to go directly to the page.
In addition, we have provided links to various WorldCat pages for the referenced books, in case you would like to access the original documents. See the References page.
Next time, we will discuss our progress gathering Birth, Marriage, and Death information from various sources.
Until next week….
Welcome to the home of the Goodwin One-Name Study.
We are just getting started so the website is just taking shape. Over the next several weeks, the initial pages of the site will be filled out. Then we will start adding information on the name, its variants, what it means, where it came from, where it has gone. In addition, we will be adding to the Resources page so that others may find information to help with their research.
A One-Name Study is more of a marathon than a sprint. The site will continue to have more information added to it over the next months, and years.
If your are looking for specific information, you can use the contact form on the Support the Project page.
If you would like to help with the study, please contact me here.
We will be adding the ability to join a mailing list so you can keep up-to-date on what we have added, and how the study is proceeding.
Again, welcome, and onward with all things Goodwin.
