BOYD Y-DNA Project - News

The largest group of Boyds in the project is an uncommon type of "R1b" called R-U198. You can find more information on this rare and interesting group here:

The other main group in our project is very interesting indeed. Haplogroup A is the "original" human Y-DNA haplogroup and has its origins in East Africa. It is found at low frequency in Europe but is otherwise rare outside Africa:

Any genealogy which people would post (in "gedcom" form) would be helpful to the project. Help us to help you!

Anyone with any questions or suggestions is most welcome to contact a Project Administrator, Jeri Ann Boyd or Bob Boyd
