One of my cousins sent me your email address because he saw you have a
Clan Boyd web site. My Grandparents came from Northern Ireland, Belfast
specifically, although the Boyds also lived in Antrim. Do you have any
info on folks from that area? I have included below the information I
have on my Boyd line. The format got a little out of whack when I cut
and pasted it, but it is still legible. Anne W. Boyd
