Originally we focused in the Lincolnshire area. However in 2000 we expanded our interests to include PASKs globally and became a member of the Guild of One-Name Studies in 2003.
Interesting PASK people include:
However the name PASKE ranks 45,977 in terms of frequency in the U.S. 1990 Census. Strangely enough the name PASK is not listed. PASKs in the UK outnumber the PASKE by 90%.
Other details that have also been extracted and indexed includes the International Genealogical Index (IGI), census returns 1841-1911, 1939 Register, parish registers, burial records, wills and grants of probate in England and Wales. Many of these are detailed in the narrative section of the PASK, PASKE One-Name Study website.
Details of the project can be found at Pask DNA Project, or in the DNA section of the PASK, PASKE One-Name Study website.
Additionally there is a Pask-Pask blog that details recent changes and new information.
An active 'closed' Facebook page is available for the Pask Family Group.
