The talk of One-Name Studies has awakened an old curiosity. I have
recently checked Rootsweb's list of One-Name Studies and there seems not
to be one for CLARKSON. I thought this a little strange since I've been
led to believe this is a not uncommon surname. What exactly is required
to launch a One-Name Study? I presume it must be registered somewhere,
but what exactly is the regimen after that? I believe some of you out
there (Josi I know for sure) are carrying on such studies and in addition
to the above information, I would be interested to know if it has proved
greatly helpful in finding information on your own family's history.
