The Phyllis J. Hughes Hull/Holl/Hohl genealogical collection is a One-Name Study (ONS). An ONS is a project researching all occurrences of a surname and concentrates on aspects such as geographical distribution of the name and the changes in that distribution over the centuries. The study may also attempt to reconstruct the genealogy of the lines bearing the surname. A frequent goal is to identify a single place of origin for the name, especially if the name appears to derive from a place name. The objective of a one-name study is to research the genealogy and family history of all persons with a given surname and its variants.
