Boyd Trees has been updated again. The new file includes 112,000
individuals and over 16,0000 Boyds.
Boyd Trees is a data base devoted to any family tree that includes the
surname BOYD. Stop by and take a look at what we do have:
If you are a contributor, thank you. If you haven't contributed your
information, then you are missing that magical e-mail that says "Hello
Cousin". I have received five of these messages myself. I also receive
6-10 messages a day asking about specific individuals on the tree. Each of
them is referred to the persons listed as the original contributor.

Well, actually...to be honest...as most everyone knows, I hold the list
record for the most "ooop's" per year! LOL ....so I'm sure my last ooops
wasn't a real shock to anyone :-) Did manage to keep the stats down
this year (I think) but only because my number of postings to the list
was down I'm sure :-)
Thanks for letting me in on your "secret" as I never would have guessed
......it's nice to know I have company :-)
Wishing you and yours...and all our list members, a wonderful happy Easter!!

Land Patents Site Up and Running
Several months after a federal court order shut down all US Department
of Interior Web sites, one of the most popular ones for genealogists is
back online. The Official Federal Land Patent Records site is once again
available for searching 2 million land title records from 1820 to 1908.
Frequent users may notice a new look and improved features, including
faster page loads, simpler navigation, streamlined searches, more data
fields and a printer-friendly results page.

Obtaining EDs for the 1930 Census
This is primarily for large cities but it appears to be a very helpful
website. From what I saw from a quick check of the site, if it does not
give you the ED for the city it will tell you what microfilm you need to
locate the ED.
NARA has put a comprehensive guide to the 1930 census on-line....very
interesting and will help you to locate the microfilm for your family
records. A must see site if you plan to research the 1930 census.

New Service available - Irish Origins
"Origins.net (www.origins.net) the major source of key Scottish and
English genealogical data on the web, are pleased to announce a new,
free service,allowing users to search their Irish ancestors on Irish
Origins(www.irishorigins.com) One of the major problems in beginning
Irish family history research,is knowing where to look for material as
many Irish records were lost in the 1922 fire at Four Courts in Dublin.
There are a number of sites on the net containing highly valuable
datasets such as birth, marriage, death records etc. but knowing where
to look for sites containing this data is often a difficult task for
family history researchers.
Irish Origins allows users to search for FREE across 17,000 Irish
genealogy web pages, containing 1.5 million names, including census
data,Griffith's valuations, ships' passenger lists, church records,
convict records and more. Also included on Irish Origins are links on
how to find useful information including Irish source archives,
discussion group,with articles and tutorials to follow shortly. By
entering in a surname,and any other relevant information such as year,
place of birth, residence,our search engine will link you directly to
sites where that name and information appears.
Access to Irish Origins is entirely free as we do not hold any primary
data ourselves, but a comprehensive searchable index to data from other
sites. The 'suggest a site' feature allows visitors to add any Irish
genealogy sites to our search facility and enable Irish Origins to
become 'The' first point of reference for Irish researchers."

I have just found some research recorded in 1998 by Mike Boyd regarding the
family of Alexander Boyd. I had found out that his son, Patrick Boyd was my
gr, gr, gr, grandfather but this is the first information relating to his
father. My grandmother was Margaret Olive Boyd b. 27/12/1910.
Has anyone some more information or connections?

You would have to give more specifics for some one to check their files.
You have no idea how many Alexander Boyd's and Patrick Boyd's there are
You might check the Boyd Trees files at World Connect, but I will be
uploading a new file this weekend. I now have over 110,000 individuals in

All of the Children were not listed , most would have already have left
home by then . I think James is a brother of William.
I want to put this on the List hope someone can be of help.
I have three obituaries that were included in my
Mary Virginia GILLAM's scrapbook. She was from Huntingdon
County, Pennsylvania, and the obits are marked "friends"
(probably by her daughter). The obituaries are for
Frank H. HARNISH of Petersburg, who died 17 February 1951;
Mrs. Jean Boyd LAKE of Warrior's Mark, died 8 March 1958;
Mrs. Carolyn G. (SHIRK) PHILLIPS, died Centre Hall

Dear Cousin Listers,
The Government of British Columbia have available through the BC Archives a searchable Vital Events Index accessible at:
There are a total of 765 entries for the surname BOYD
These consist of :
1872-1981 Deaths 562
For those wondering why 1872, British Columbia is a young province joining the Dominion of Canada in 1871.
I have a contact who is willing to do lookups & copy service for a very fair price.
I can pass that information on if needed.
With Kind Regards;
