The Blagdon Surname Study covers the data and stories of holders of the BLAGDON surname in the county of Devon, England. It grew from the research I did and the lessons I learned during 2015's "Genealogy Do-Over", created by Thomas MacEntee. It was a chance for participants to put aside all their previous research ('put aside', not 'throw away'!) and start again, this time incorporating proper genealogical standards and methodology.
So I began studying - and the first thing I learnt is to Slow Down (ha ha). I have become passionate about citing sources, and am heavily involved in the "Sourcerer's Challenge" on WikiTree. I worked slowly and carefully through the generations and discovered things I had missed the first time around, just because I was rushing to get to that nugget of information I was sure was there.
The Study is still in its infancy, so I am gathering data as fast as I can - and any BLAGDON information you might have will be much appreciated. Join me and see if you can go further back, too!© Ros Haywood. All Rights Reserved.
