About us

In historical records, there are surnames that incorporate "Bog" or similar root words.  We have have learned with Y-DNA testing that similar names may not be related. We have also learned that some surnames with different spellings are related. We have found that some Bogue and Boggs share the same common ancestor. We have found that most Boggs, Bogle, and Bogart have a common ancestor. We have found that some Boggess, Bauguess, and Bogues have a common ancestor. At this point, no relationship has been found between Scot/Irish Boggs and Bogg of England. Beggs and Biggs are likely related. A primary goal at this point would be to get Y-DNA test for Boag of Scotland and Bogue from Ireland to determine where they fit in to the Y-DNA tree.

Males with surnames Baggs, Beggs, Boag, Boags, Bodge, Boegs, Box, Bogg, Boggas, Bogges, Boggis, Boggs, Bogle, Boggus, Bogs, Bogue, Bogart, and Bogues are invited to join.

SNPs have been found to be a key in linking Boggs lines. Most  Boggs's fall under the Z18000 haplogroup. Here is a list of kits that have tested for a confirmed final SNP haplogroup at FTDNA or YSEQ or assumed to be based on testing of a close relative.
