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 researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

I have also begun a Linthicum One Name Study with the Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS) I have several trees posted there with many family lines besides my own.

SEE: Linthicum at

My primary goals for this study are:

Connecting with other researchers to replace unproven family lore with facts such as: 1. What was the maiden name of Jane, who married our immigrant Thomas? When and where were they married? 2. Where was Thomas born? 3. When and where did Thomas connect with the Friends? 4. What was the family homeland? Linscomb in England seems to be a strong possibility and I hope to make connections with some English "cousins?"

Determine if there were immigrants besides Thomas Linscomb/Linthicum who came to Maryland in 1658 and try to connect the many name variants to this single immigrant or others if they exist or to other proper family lines. A combination of optimum research and increased participation in the FTDNA Linthicum Surname Study may lead us slowly to this end.

To learn from others and aid them in their Linthicum research.

update: all set. Also, Project:Linscomb and Project:Linthicum both redirect to this page now.

Hi! Your Space page can stay with the two surnames, but there can be only one for the Category name (although, you could have two Categories... Linscomb Name Study & Linthicum Name Study - but it doesn't seem like that would serve you well). Either way, for now, I need to create just one. Which is preferred - Linscomb?
