Each study listed in the Register of One-Name Studies is classified into one of three categories, A, B or C. When applying, the member must propose to the Registrar which of the following categories is believed to be the most appropriate to indicate the level of their research on that surname.
This study is currently registered under categories B:
A Surname which the member researches and for which the member collects all references and has accumulated a substantial body of worldwide data over a period of years. The member may or may not produce a newsletter. ACHIEVED 18.4.2010. I am now working towards registration under Category A.
A Surname for which the member represents a fully constituted one-name society, which publishes a regular one-name periodical or newsletter, researches and collects all references to the registered surname and has collected a substantial body of worldwide data over a period of time. The member has the rights and obligations of membership on behalf of the society.

Many thanks to all those of you who have helped achieve this.
