The Origins of the Hicks Family Traditions

Record #:
The folklore found within a nuclear or extended family tends to be transmitted from parents and grandparents to children. By using genealogy, the researcher may trace traditions back through a family tree and determine their origins. The author identified four groups of descendents of David Hicks, Sr., whose geographic separation enabled him to trace the origins of their traditions by comparing likenesses and differences between them.
