Am I related to any of you? Nee Orick

This evening with little or nothing to do, I typed in George Orick who is my father. He is a retired journalist with ABC News. I found some articles written both by him and about him and had a little journey and that was that. Then I read further into the links. I found this site. Among others I will add. I also came accross many other Oricks and wondered with such a rare and unique name am I related to any of you?

I live in southern California. My father is German, Dutch and Irish. However our last name was originally van Oort. It was changed as were so many during the turn of the century when his father emigrated here from Germany.

His father is from Orick in Germany. Are any of you?

I will come back and visit this site but I am so struck by this! I have to go to sleep but I will check back.

Thanks for listening.

Sarah
