@Sarah Willard G - the short answer is yes, but it's not the easiest of things to setup. If you need help, let me know and I'll ping a member of this community that can give you a hand.

Thank you, indeed I have set up the parked domains so that they have
wording in each one that can lead to the main domain with 301 re-directs.
I now have 11 parked domains and 1 main domain..not one of which is working.
I have added all as http and https as directed by Google...But I have *all
*of the google tracking codes for the parked domainsinside the main domain
and I do not know how to *get inside its workings* so that I can remove all
of the parked tracking codes.
Thank you for your former clear advice.

Could you elaborate on your question? It's a little unclear what exactly you mean by Google accepting parked domains that are redirected to the main domain: is it Google search that you're referring to? Also by redirecting do you mean something like parked-domain.tld being 301/2 redirected to main-domain.tld?

Perhaps I should have said: does Google Analytics approve alias ( parked)
domains all with a 301 redirect

When you say a parked Domain I am assuming you mean a secondary domain that points to the same content on the website as a primary domain, correct ? If that is the case then Google search will only index the primary domain, while it is aware of the secondary domain that  one will not appear and search results. In Google Search Console you can alert Google to the preferred domain for your site.

In Analytics however you can set up an account using a secondary domain. I have done this when I have switched domains/business name in order to monitor the traffic coming to the site from both the old domain name which still pointed to the new to the site with the new domain name and the new domain name. If you are moving from an old domain to a new one there is a process for doing this that again, Google Search Console can help you with.

Brandon, I could do with some help with the Parked Domains...also are Sitemaps and Googlebots placed on the main domain and not on the Parked domains.

Sarah, I've cc'd @MikeJohnston in on this question, as he can most likely answer this much better than I can. There's a lot of important details in your question and I don't want to mess things up for you.
