Good day to you all,
I note with interest the discussions of the origins of the Boyd name. There are, of
course, multiple origins of many, if not most, surnames.
This is why DNA testing is so very exciting for genealogical research. In our Boyd DNA
Project, we have several different catagories of Boyds who appear to have different
origins. ALL the various origins hypothesized may, in fact, be true.
The more participants we have in the project, the greater chance we have of connecting
the various Boyd branches with their origins.
I encourage you all to join the project by ordering your test kit at www.ftdna.com
Search for the Boyd surname and order your Y-DNA test kit for males with the Boyd surname.
Please order the 67 marker test, if possible.
There have been some exciting developments, and we hope for many more of the same as our
data base grows.
