About the Project

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

Hi Kaye

Thank you for your interest. The One Name Studies Project requires its participants to be Honor Code signatories and volunteer genealogists. Once you do that, I can get you added to the study as a member. If you prefer not to, you can certainly collaborate with the current members of the study using the comment section here.

Sincerely, Amy Gilpin WikiTree's One Name Studies Project Co-Leader

I like to join this study I have lots Watson in my family.
Hi. I wish to join this group. My Watsons originated in Scotland - moved to Poland (as many Scots did) - then Plymouth in Devon - then South Africa. I am now back in Scotland. Others ended up in Macao / Hong Kong (as did Alexander Skirving Watson. See Wiki) and I understand America, Australia etc. I have recorded quite a lot my personal lineage on http://www.spanglefish.com/JeremysWatsonWellsMillerandCrawfordfamilystories/index.asp
