About the Project

The RubyName Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Ruby 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 Ruby 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 Rubys), by time period (18th Century Rubys), or by topic (RubyDNA, Ruby Occupations, Ruby 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.

Archive information

A Ruby One-name Surname Project was previously collaboratively run by members of the Guild of One-Name Studies.

The Guild's Ruby One-name Study was unique in that it was an initiative of a small group of Guild members in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Guild in September 2019. No one on the project team had a Ruby surname in their history but the surname was chosen as the ruby gemstone is associated with the 40th anniversary! When some initial research showed that the surname had so many different country and cultural origins, it seemed ideal for the Guild's international scope.
