In Reply to: Re: French Descent Rickers and German Rickers by Laurice Jackson of 606

Hi,again, Laurice. I did more reading and found one short site beyond the Spanish-found town of San Juan de la Tournesa de Maturin."The surname of Ricart originated in Villaneuva Y Geltru, a city in Barcelona Province, Spain.Barcelona is next to France, and residents speak Catalona,a kind of in-beween (language)of French and Spanish. Variations of names include Rica, Ricart, Richet, etc. If you wish to contact me, "Remar@access1.net." from Lillian Martin." posted on Ancestry.com Ricker 2/29/2000.
I think this is the posting I mentioned in my earlier reply to you. I never did reply to Lillian Martin.
Re: your own unknown Spanish ancestry on DNA test. I have not done my own DNA, but through research and family messages among my cousins around U.S, I found researched
American Indian ancestry, Greek, one Portuguese couple, a long English line, one gggggmother right from Ireland, another from Amsterdam, a ggrandfather of Dutch/English ancestry, a proud Flemish soldier, direct Spanish ancestors, and several Spanish soldiers who had been stationd in Mexico long enough to marry natives back in 1580. My husband was the Ricker descendent, but his great grandfather legally changed that surname to Davis due to family squabble. LD
