Scope of this Study

One of the most important things any study can do is define its scope.
By defining the scope we can decide what the study does and does not cover.

The basic study attempts to:

  1. Research the origin and global distribution of these surnames
  2. Collect as much data as possible on people with these surnames and their descendants
  3. Form the individuals into family groups; and link groups of families by birth and marriage
  4. Document and distribute the results of this research

By doing so, this study may become the global resource for anyone researching any of these surnames.
