In recent months we have been working alongside family history researchers in America, Australia and New Zealand in an attempt to work out Starbuck family connections and pin down the dates and details of emigrations from the UK. We are aware of a core Starbuck presence across the Midlands – Notts, Leics, Lincs, Derbys and Staffs.
Researchers are keen to trace members of the male-line Starbucks who have taken Y-DNA tests (or may be interested in taking tests). In particular, a researcher in America is keen to find connections to her Nantucket Starbucks (famous whaling family and the inspiration for the novel, Moby Dick).
If you can help or have any queries or if you would like to become involved in this project, please contact us and we will put you in touch.
(Please note; this research is being carried out by historians outside Hickling (Notts) LHG – participation is entirely at individual’s own discretion.)
