1. To better describe “what we are” and “who we are”. It was thought that having “genealogy” and “research” in the name would immediately help people understand what we do.

2. In this day and age everything is found via an internet search engine; with the current name interested Dunhams might find it difficult to find our website and our facebook page. The most common search phrase might be “Dunham Genealogy” – using this criteria our search ranking are low on both google and bing. Note that this will vary between users as they both cache previous searches for a given user.

3. It is relatively easy to do. We are incorporated in the state of Montana, where we simply need to file a form with that state showing we are “doing business as” (DBA) to operate under a name different from the name which we used to incorporate.

The board converged on the name “Dunham Genealogy Research Association”. The board voted and approved the change, it will then be presented to the membership for their approval.
