The Ricketts Surname Project
The Ricketts Family History and DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today! Our project started in 2009, and we are having many exciting discoveries. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname. Many of the surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Ricketts one-name study. A one-name study involves researching all occurrences of a surname and variants, usually on a global basis. Those who pursue a one-name study often build up a large volume of data and information, which can help other genealogists with their family tree. The co-administrator of the Ricketts DNA Project has been researching the surname Ricketts and variants for over 40 years. You can learn more about this research, by visiting the one-name study web site. http://one-name.org/profiles/ricketts.html Your participation in the DNA Project will be an invaluable contribution to both your family tree research and towards discovering more information about the Ricketts surname and the origin of the surname. The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Ricketts or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree. We encourage males to order a Y-DNA test for 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more. Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. To explore your direct female line, you would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Full Sequence test. Join us and find out who you match. Order a test kit below.
