A one name study is a project researching all occurrences of a surname worldwide, as opposed to a particular pedigree or descendancy.

The principal aims of the Altham One Name Study are

       to collate as much information as possible on all individuals sharing the surname

       to freely share this with other family history researchers

       to compile family trees from the earliest known members of the family

       to link these trees via further research

       to expand the coverage of these trees to include other descendants.
