About the Project

The Litaker Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Litaker 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 Litaker name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Litakers), by time period (18th Century Litakers), or by topic (Litaker DNA, Litaker Occupations, Litaker 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.

Related Surnames and Surname Variants


This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Litaker surname and the variants (Lytaker, Lytecker, Litecker, Leidecker, Lydecker, Leyendecker, Layendecker, etc.) of that name.

Many of the Litakers profiles associated with this study resided in Cabarrus or Rowan counties in North Carolina. The original immigrant for those Litaker lines came from Germany to Pennsylvania and had descendants who moved from Pennsylvania and settled in Cabarrus County.
