GSSB Surname Database
GSSB offers our members the opportunity to enter surnames and related data into our online database, which we then offer directly to our website users and indirectly through internet search engines.
The GSSB Surname Directory is a collaborative tool giving users a way to search for surnames of interest and to contact the GSSB member who is researching that name.
There is no cost to use our Surname Directory and you do not need to be a GSSB member to conduct a search. However, we encourage you to become a member to take full advantage of also entering surnames YOU are researching--and receive all the other benefits our society offers. Click here if you wish to join our society.
To search the Surname Database click here (or lookups button above), then enter the surname you wish to search and click on the magnifying glass icon. You also have the option of flipping through the list using the page view.
Click on the eye icon and a new window will open with the Surname Detail (which can be printed). If you have a potential match, click the envelope icon, which opens the Surname Inquiry Emailer, and send an email to the GSSB member who posted the information to explore and collaborate on your mutual surname research.
