Runciman Surname One Name Study/DNA project (Goons)
You are currently anonymous Log In

The Runciman One Name Study aims to answer the following questions:
  • Where did the RUNCIMAN name come from?
  • How many RUNCIMANs are there now?
  • How many were there?
  • Where are, and were, they?
  • How many different spellings of the name?
  • And are they all related?
These pages are hosted by the Guild of One Name Studies and as such supplement those maintained by Lorna at Runciman ONS & DNA project.
The main differences being that at this site, should you wish to include your own Runciman lineage here, you may request an account and thus contribute your own data. (Check out the Import guidelines)
This site also has more flexible viewing/search options.
Trees will tend to only show descendants with the surname Runciman (or variants), along with their spouse(s), and stop before any descendant born after 1910.
They are by no means complete - additions and corrections welcome.
