Abstract:

This book combines linguistic and historical approaches with the latest
techniques of DNA analysis and show the insights these offer for every kind
of genealogical research. It focuses on British names, tracing their origins to
different parts of the British Isles and Europe and revealing how names often
remain concentrated in the districts where they first became established
centuries ago. In the process the book casts fresh light on the ancient
peopling of the British Isles. The authors consider why some names die out,
and how others have spread across the globe. They use recent advances in
DNA testing to discover whether particular surnames have a single, dual or
multiple origins and whether various forms of a name have a common origin.
They show how information from DNA can be combined with historical
evidence and techniques to distinguish between individuals with the same
name and different names with similar spellings and to identify the name of
the same individual or family spelt in various ways in different times and
places.

Clearly written and illustrated with hundreds of examples, this book will be
welcomed by all those engaged in genealogical research, including everyone
seeking to discover the histories of their names and families.
