About the Project

The Blanchard Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Blanchard name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Blanchard name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Blanchards), by time period (18th Century Blanchards), or by topic (Blanchard DNA, Blanchard Occupations, Blanchard Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Hi Lisa

I have removed the one name study sticker and categories for the surname BLANCHARD from https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hiscock-1693. Unfortunately the original profile was created with the wrong surname at birth and has been corrected.

I hope this meets with your approval

Hi Lisa! I appreciate your enthusiasm for the Blanchard name, as I have a few of them in my ancestors. However, are you aware of how common it is? It ranks #62 most common surname in France, and I'm sure it's very common in other francophone communities too.

I had no idea when I started. I'm learning so much about their history. Certain areas having a lot of Blanchards is new to me also.

hello Lisa,

I noticed you are putting the Blanchard name study tag on women who married a Blanchard, although their own name was not Blanchard at all. Can you enlighten me as to the logic behind this? Thanks.
