The Fosker study started back in the mid 1980s when I was trying to unravel my maternal great, great Grandmother Phoebe FOSKUEs family.
This soon progressed to a one-name study and I joined the Guild back in 1994.
The main variants of the name are FOSCUE, FOSKUE, FOSQUE and FOSKEW.
During WW1 some families changed their name to Foster and these are traced where known.
A FOSKER DNA project has been set up with Family Tree DNA.
Males bearing the name FOSKER, and the derivatives, are invited to join the project by donating a sample of their DNA.
Details of the project can be found at FOSKER DNA Project.
