Surnames dictionary goes free for family bonding in lockdown

Online tool drops paywall for a week and people invited to share photos relating to their names

An online dictionary explaining the meanings and origins of more than 45,000 British and Irish surnames is being made accessible to all in the hope that it might help bring families separated by Covid-19 closer together.

For the next week, people will be able to tap into the Oxford Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland for free and find out where their surnames - and thus perhaps their ancestors - came from.
