About this study

The purpose of this study is to work together here on Wikitree to break brick walls and gather useful information. We'll do that by collecting accurate, sourced information and resources pertaining to the Secor family in America (including Secord and Secord surnames).

The main focus of this study is Sicard/Secord/Secor families in North America (U.S. and Canada), but it's fine to include Secor/d branches outside of North America, too.

Note: "Secor/d" refers to two variations of the name: Secor and Secord. The original "Sicard" is also included in this one name study.

How to Join

You are welcome to just jump in after reading the goals and process described below for this project.

If you have any questions, please contact the project leader Alison McClintock or leave a comment at the foot of the page. Thanks!


You can contribute by doing any of the following:

  1. Take a DNA test and add the results to your profile. Your results will also appear on Secor DNA Connections.
  2. Profile Improvement
    1. Ensure each profile is Genealogically Defined.
    2. Add sources!
      • Add in-line sources for each fact, avoiding references to unsourced online trees.
      • Add new information with in-line sources; review vital information in profiles and substantiate same; and review and confirm existing source citations.
    3. Connect any unconnected family member (i.e. ones with unknown parents) to one of the oldest Secor/Secord/Sicard lineages.
    4. Add Categories where appropriate.
  3. Write or expand biographies, using in-line sources and adding explanatory remarks, if needed (i.e. Research Notes, disputed persons sections).
  4. Discover the relationship between the oldest Secor/d individuals within the United States and any immigration to the United States.
  5. Gather a list of useful sources
  6. Make a list of Sicard/Secord/Secor notables

Adding a Profile to this Study

Please avoid adding every Secor/Secord/Sicard profile to this Study. See List of Secor Profiles below to get a sorted list of every Secor profile on WikiTree.

The criteria for adding a Secor/d profile to the study are:

  1. Add a Secor/d profile to this study if their Secor/d ancestor is currently unknown (or uncertain).
  2. Add a Secor/d profile to this study if they are Adopted.

To add your ancestor to this study, simply copy the following template to the Biography section of his or her profile:

{{One Name Study|name=Secor|category=Secor Name Study}}

Once the profile is connected to the main Secor/d family line, then remove the template from the profile. Keep the template if the Secor/d parentage is marked as uncertain.


  1. Take existing Secor/d profiles on WikiTree and use records found on FamilySearch.org and elsewhere to reconstruct the pedigree as much as possible.
  2. Find other Secor/ds on FamilySearch.org etc, add them to WikiTree, reconstruct pedigree or find where they fit in existing families
  3. Find any historical newspaper references to any Secor/d in the United States
  4. Find any histories of the Secor/d family, whether books, previous personal research, or other written materials. Use these to compare against primary records.
  • Note: Please make sure to provide sources for all information. Please do not base profiles entirely on derivative sources, such as online family trees that aren't sourced. If the tree you are referencing is sourced, please provide those sources on the profile. Otherwise, please do not blindly copy over information from online trees and risk repeating their mistakes. As Wikitree says, "The buck stops here."
