Adding a "Davidson" One_Name_Study

+9 votes

My cousin, Sandra Davidson was looking at the various One Name Studies on WikiTree and noticed there wasn't one for the "Davidson" surname. I looked to see how many Davidson's we have and as of today we have 6,466. Is there anyone out there who would like to start a Davidson One Name Study for them that has a "surname" of Davidson??

I would volunteer to help add those Davidson's on my watchlist. Sandra was not born a Davidson so she can't add her own name to it but I am sure I can get her to add those on her watch list as well.

Here is a link to see how to go about it at:

I did it, I created the "Davidson Name Study" which is part of the One Name Study Project.

So all you Davidsons out there, come join us!!! Please add your Davidson born ancestors by putting [[Category:Davidson Name Study]] above the word "Biography" on your profile's edit page.  

Forgot to put where the study is located: 

*Information on the study can be found here:

Congratulations on your "Davidson Name Study" Sandra!! 

Hopefully many will find it and add their Davidson profile name to it so others visiting or just joining Wiki Tree might find their relatives or ancestors included in it.  Way to go cousin!!

Note:  There is a Clan Davidson under the Scottish Clans project that needs a project coordinator -

The Clan Davidson is one of the clans belonging to the Clan Chattan confederacy - see

Mainly I was asking about the Davidson surname in itself, for all WikiTree members and their relatives with the "Davidson" surname from all countries, eras and time frames to be in one collective place like the other one name studies. 

But maybe someone would like that project as well. 

Hey, where are the Davidson's out there !!! Don't you want your own surname one_name_study category?????????

Selfishly, I would love attention on Davidson because I have a brick wall at a Henry Davidson and have no leads to connect him to the surname (in late-18th century Maryland). But I don't know that I have much to contribute to a larger ONS.

We have the Davidson Name Study up and running, just add  [[Category:Davidson Name Study]] to your Davidson profiles above the word Biography on your edit page for your Davidson profiles!!

Your enthusiasm is so infectious, it makes me wish I HAD some Davidsons! :)
