About the Project

The Ricks Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Ricks 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 Ricks 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 Ricks), by time period (18th Century Ricks), or by topic (Ricks DNA, Ricks Occupations, Ricks 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! I created the companion category for your name study (Category:Ricks Name Study). Feel free to edit it. The default for the template is to add the main category, but you can add a line to have a different category. See the ONS template page for details. Give me a holler if you have any questions about categorization.

I also created a redirect, so Project:Ricks (the link for the button from the Ricks surname page) brings you to this page.

Cheers, Liz
