About the Project

The Torres Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Torres 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 Torres 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 Torres's), by time period (18th Century Torres's), or by topic (Torres DNA, Torres Occupations, Torres 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.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

How to Help

There are several ways to contribute to the Torres Name Study. First check to see if there are any Torres profiles in your family tree and add them to the study. Make sure to add a location category as well, or contact the project manager for assistance in creating a new one.

Otherwise, feel free to browse the profiles within the study and adopt any orphaned profiles. Several of the biographies still need improvement, connection to the main tree, or even sources. Similarly, any orphaned profiles without the project tag may be added.

Finally, feel free to browse records in order to add additional Torres profiles to WikiTree. Generally census records, marriage records, baptism records, or death records found on FamilySearch make for good sources as they are readily available online with no subscription required.

Research Pages

Currently research is being organised by category. Each member of the Torres Name Study appears in the Torres Name Study category, but one or more narrower categories may be added to a person’s profile. If a category for your area of interest does not yet exist, then feel free to leave a comment with your suggestion. Good ideas for potential categories should be specific and include but are not limited to the following:

  • Place of Origin (USA, Mexico, Canada, etc.)
  • Ancestry (Descendants of Example Torres)
  • Time Period (1800s, 1900s, 2000s, etc.)


Members of the project will be added upon request and listed below.
