This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other Elcock researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Task List

  1. To research Elcock families and add their profiles to wikiTree.
  2. Maintenance of the profiles, for example finding and adding sources to Elcock profiles that are currently unsourced.
  3. Add stickers and categorise profiles.

Help Categorisation
  • The best place to start is with your own Elcock ancestors. Go over the profiles and see if you can improve them.
Look to:
  • Add dates if they are not there.
  • Remember, BMD registers are when the event was registered, not when it happened. This is particularly important when it comes to Birth Date. Wikitree does not recognise this when GEDCOMs are uploaded. If you don't know the exact date add the year if known.
  • If you don't know the birth or death date for a person, you're encouraged to estimate a date. Help with Estimated Dates. Remember to add {{Estimated Date}} to the top of the profile above the == Biography == headline.
  • Add sources if they are not on the profile. Otherwise add {{Unsourced}} to the top of the profile.
  • Build a bio that provides, as a minimum, enough information to ensure the profile does not get incorrectly merged.
  • Are they Genealogically Defined ? Add [[Space:Genealogically Defined|Genealogically Defined]] below the categories and above the ==Biography== Header on the profile.
