GOONS open online store

From the Guild of One-Name Studies:

The Guild of One-Name Studies has today opened its on-line store. The Guild bookstall sells a wide range of genealogical and one-name study books, genealogical software and various well illustrated books about places (typically UK towns) and their history. These items are currently only available to members of the Guild or can be purchased from the Guild’s bookstall.

However from today there is now an online facility for ordering vouchers via PayPal, credit card, or (by post) by cheque. Eventually the range of items available on-line will increase but at present only vouchers can be purchased on-line.

Voucher sales

FindMyPast and Ancestry are the foremost online providers of genealogical data, and both issue pre-payment vouchers for their websites. Vouchers are a great way to get started, and just the thing if you want to dip into the records now and then - and there are millions and millions of records to choose from!

The Guild’s on-line form will allow you to order the vouchers you want, and to pay for them in whatever way suits you best. If you have a credit card, you can order online using the secure PayPal processing (even if you do not have a PayPal account). Alternatively, once you have filled in the form you can print it out and send it to the Guild of One-Name Studies with your cheque, by post. The vouchers available to purchase are:

•Ancestry Voucher: 10 Record Views
•Findmypast / 1911Census Voucher: 40 credits
•Findmypast "Explorer" 3-month subscription
•Findmypast "Explorer" 12-month subscription

Cliff Kemball, the Guild’s Treasurer, said today, “The Guild is delighted to be able to sell Findmypast and Ancestry vouchers on-line to members of the public worldwide. Over the coming months, the Guild fully intends to extend the range of items it can sell on-line.”
