    1. [BOYD-DNA] [ADMIN NOTE] The Rootsweb lists are ending communication March 2, 2020 Were we go from here
    2. Lauren Boyd McLachlan
    3. Dear Cousins As you are aware, Ancestry is closing the Rootsweb mailing lists to live communication.As of March 2, 2020 you will not be able to send or receive messages via Rootsweb lists. Just a few hours from now. Whatever is currently housed under the Domain Name Rootsweb, will remain until Ancestry makes any decisions it feels necessary in future. The List Archives for all the Lists at Rootsweb are to remain viewable. and searchable. I do not find their search engine to be robust. You may want to browse each year and month if you do not find searching the list to turn up what you are seeking. Also, trying a google search can be effective. You have a couple of hours to post your last ditch messages. BE SURE to put your contact information in the body of the post so that people can contact you in future. Be aware that this informaiton will be permanently viewable to anyone searching the archives in future, so be prudent and do not compromise your own security. When the lists close, tha Admin tools also go away. I won't be able to assist with Rootsweb list items. The Rootsweb/Ancestry Message Boards will remain active. You CAN post there. You do NOT need an Ancestry paid account. You do, however, need to have a login ID and password. If you do not have an Ancestry account, you will not be able to have direct contact with authors of posts in private. Consider putting your contact info in the body of your messages. Where do we go from here? Firtsty, Thank you for adding to the body of the your families history since 1996 on Rootsweb.com I am the Admin for about 100 surname, location, clan and DNA lists. I am downloading all the subscriber addresses. I have not yet created a place to move the lists. However, that is the end aim. Bear with me as I have been a List Admin at Rootsweb since 1996 and have 100 lists to deal with in attempt to preserve a friendly email experience with all who are accustomed to that environment. IF you are on Facebook, consider joining the House of Boyd AKA Clan Boyd group. It is the oldest Boyd group on Facebook anp the official group for House of Boyd Society. We keep it friendly. https://www.facebook.com/groups/7644244762/ You may also enjoy the Boyd! group ---- My last name is Boyd and so is their's. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2204455127/ Karen and Brian who began Rootsweb, and also created LInkpendium, were heavily considering creating "Rootsweb the Next Generation." I held off acting to move the lists elsewhere as I was hoping they would go forth with their perceived craziness and I could move all to RWTNG. Alas, life is too complicated to create such a venue at this time. That said, they will be adding links as they are sent to them, to show where the Rootsweb lists have gone. I have not asked Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi's list, butt I suspect she may do the same. Lots of work. There are currently over 31, 000 lists housed at Rootsweb. So...Let me assure you that I will not use your email addresses for any purpose but to alert you where I have found to continue this conversation. We began the Boyd List in the early 1990s and will not let it die. There are a few opions and I may move it to groups.io However, that has not happened yet and we will also announce it in the Dean Road when the move comes about. Not sure what to name the list... maybe a few things to make it easier to be found, and not get you confused. Come out to the Scottish Games and visit with us in person. Join us at our Annual General Meeting this May in Victoria, BC, Canada. Til we meet again!

    1. [BOYD-DNA] ADMIN NOTE: DNA Posts/ messages containing DNA info
    2. Lauren Boyd McLachlan
    3. Dear Cousins: I have set the Boyd list to moderate as we have experienced a privacy breach. I have had to request messages be removed from the archives. I moderated the list so no further replies would possibly quote the message. I realize no malice was intended so am not dragging out the fly swatter. So here are the RULES. (again, more in depth, probably) It is not allowed to share specific result information, email addresses, relationships, or any other information obtained as a member of a DNA Project (Specifically the BOYD DNA Project.) outside the private communicaitons of that Project. It is not allowed to post this information to the Boyd list(s) [ norRootweb lists in general] unless, you post only YOUR informaiton and NOTHING related to anyone else. They may post for themselves, and not for you. To do so is a breach of Privacy of the Project -- when Cal; and I founded the Boyd DNA Project, we established that Privacy was of the utmost concern. The current Project Managers uphold privacy as well and will NOT breach it. FTDNA also has rules regarding Privacy,for the ADMINS especially, but in general. Rootsweb and Ancestry.com also have strict guidelines about breech of privacy. Consult the Acceptable Use Policy and Community Guidelines. Please remember that the lists are publicly archived. It is not easy to remove posts from the archives and it is not done lightly. However, there are instances such as this that it is required. It would also be apprecated if you would delet the two messages that you recieved via email from the list that contained the recent DNA results and identifieres for living people. Thank you for your cooperation. Now, let's all get back to our lively discussion of dead folks! Yours Aye, Lauren Boyd LIst Admin Boyd DNA List Admin co-founder Boyd DNA Project

I don't see many reviews regarding using this chair as a full time work chair. It is probably because most companies provide decent seating for their employees, however just in case there is another that believes buying the cheapest chair possible for someone that sits in it full time I wanted to be sure that this review was there for them. Invest some money in your employees chairs, they will be much more willing to work for you. This chair is not meant for someone who spends a significant amount of time in it. It has been a week and both armrests broke. The chair has leaned to one side sine I got it and the seat back has never been able to be locked into an upright position. This is a great chair for doing bills once a month (which given the price is obvious), however full time use doesn't seem to be its intent. Stop these: http://www.collectionslink.stream/l/lt2J555V56H/55TJ71J107K24M1820017N622632587

    1. [BOYD-DNA] (BOYD) My BOYD direct line - John Boyd (1735-1800) & Sarah Gryfyth
    2. I am descendant of John Boyd and Sarah Gryfyth> John Jr.Boyd and Ann Nancy Martin> William Glenn Boyd and Tomzey Cofer . My cousin Delmar S. Boyd (desceased) was donor for DNA testing. We are Haplogroup A - as I understand new DNA Category A1b1b2b I do not have any documentary evidence as to John Boyd's parents or date of birth. Sources for place of birth are 2 histories: 1) A History of Berkeley County, WV by Willis S. Evans, 1928 2) Aler's History of Martinsburg and Berkeley County, WV by F. Vernon Aler, 1888 Both state he was born in England, but do not give place. Although it would seem to be a logical conclusion, I have found no connection between John Boyd and Belle Boyd. I have read quite a bit about Belle Boyd but have done no in depth research to try to prove or disprove a relationship. John Boyd of Berkeley County, WV by Gordon W. Paul, 1991, has a copy of Lord Fairfax's grant of 53 acres to John Boyd of Berkeley County. This tract of land was in BerkeleyCounty, adjoining North Mountain. Signed Fairfax in his office in Frederick County dated the 15th day of June 1778. Mike - Thank you for your interest and help, as always. Curtis - Would like to exchange information, will share anything I have. I have visited the graves of Isaac and Jane Callahan at Shiloh Cemetery - are these your ancestors? Jane's oldest brother, William Glenn Boyd, was my 3rd gr grandfather. Betty Cathcart Terrell TX [email protected]_ (mailto:[email protected])

    2. Mike Boyd
    3. There is someone on the DNA group - I think it is the R198 group - that has this family of John and Sarah. At present I can't use my ISYS program to search for the FILE that I have it stored in. This John Boyd's parents are said to be Robert Boyd b 1706 and died 1761 in Cumberland Co., PA who is said to have married a Elizabeth Buntein. Firstly, Mike Boyd doe snot think that this Elizabeth was the wife of this Robert Boyd of Cumberland County, PA. Secondly, that Robert Boyd has two books written about him and his son John Boyd was born in 1725 in Irvine, Ayrshire. Thirdly, by the mention of Martinsburg, VA would suggest to me that this family is connected to the same family as Belle Boyd the spy. Scott Lee Boyd's book of 1935 outlined this family. But as I do not have a copy, I can't say if this John Boyd b 1735 is part of family. Fourthly, with the mention of Frederick Co, VA would suggest a connection to the Boyd family from Herring Bay, MD who came before 1683 to Maryland. If this is your family could you please, could you contact Curtis. It would appear that he has got his family back to John and Sarah Boyd and is looking for his parents. If I recall the right family tree, it does back to 1635 in England. On Wednesday 22 May 2013, I will be going to the USA for 6 weeks to do further research on Boyd families.

    1. [BOYD-DNA] Mike Boyd's visit to Glasgow, KY Games 31 May to 2 June 2013
    2. Mike Boyd
    3. I can get a flight form Greenville, SC on 1.30 pm each day and arrive at Nashville, TN by 1.35 pm local time. Can anyone in the Nashville, TN or Glasgow, KY area tell me if there is any “bus” service from Nashville that might go through Glasgow (and STOP) there? And what time might iot leave Nashville? I understand that Greyhound goes from Nashville and goes to Bowling Green – about 30 miles west of Glasgow – and arrive sin Bowling Green about 3 pm. So this would mean that if I FLY on Friday I ASSUME that I would miss the only bus going north and would have to fly from Greenville, SC on the Thursday Could you let me know in the next few days please, so I can finalise my travel plans Thank you Mike Boyd Historical Committee, hBS

    1. Re: [BOYD-DNA] Fw: AfrAm Boyd's
    2. Mike Boyd
    3. Bob I think that does make sense. It is known that there were Boyd sailors in Irvine in the 1500's. There seems to be "plenty" who were merchants from the various Burgess list available. We also know that there were Boyd French Huguenots in SW France, who in the 1600's were sugar refiners - I assume getting sugar from the West Indies. And we know that Boyds were in Holland from the late 1600's but not if they were there earlier. So what is meant by the "horn of Africa" to see that would suggest the County of Somalia. However, if that might include Kenya, it could mean that a Mr Boyd, who was a merchant, set up a "trading post" on the Kenya coast. When the Portuguese discovered the sea route around the Cape of Good Hope in 1492 (?) they would sail up the east coast of Africa and at about Kenya do NE on the winds the Arab traders used to go to India. I know later the Dutch sailors would go east from the Cape of Good Hope and "almost" hit Australia before turning north to Indonesia. However, I do not know when this took place. I do know that one hit the Western Australian coast in 1642 (?). This "Mr Boyd" could have come from a number of Cadet Branches and I would assume that he was a younger son - have "left" home - or could have been a merchant from Kilmarnock, Glasgow, Edinburgh or some of the other towns like, Stirling, Perth, Dundee or Aberdeen. There is a third area that this "Mr Boyd" might come from and that is the Church. I do not know if the Scottish was sending missionaries out to the World in the late 1500's. But this may be area that a group may wish to investigate. During my trips to Ayrshire, i was told several times that some of the "local" Clans were pirates. I think it was mentioned that some of the Montgomeries were involved in piracy, so if they were involved, I would not be at all surprised that some of the Boyd sailors from Irvine might have also been involved in such deeds. Unfortunately, very little is known about the sailors from Irvine in the 1500's to tell us if any Boyds were involved in piracy or were just plan sailing merchants. Or if any such sailors may have set up a "trading post" in Kenya/Somalia If those in this A3b2 group can "take" their paper trees back another 100 years or so that might help. I realise that this is very short of "facts", but it may give various members different areas to research to build up our knowledge the several areas needed here solve this problem.

While A3b2 is believed to have originated in the horn of Africa the form within our Boyd group is like that which migrated across northern Africa and into southern Europe. >From my analysis of the Boyd A3b2 DNA I have the MRCA being born about 11 generations ago or 1578. Obviously this number is more precise than accurate. I would also think the error bars are skewed more toward further back than recent. Based on the timing and success of his descendents I would be inclined to think the person involved was successful more so than a slave. My view would be more towards a merchant or possibly another occupation that would have stature in the community. Bob Boyd

    3. Mike, a few comments, The specific countries in Africa with significant A3b2 are Ethiopia and Sudan. I would expect Somalia also. From there two branches spread in opposite directions toward Europe. One east through the Mideast and one west through north Africa. Our A3b2 DNA is like the branch that spread west. When I have looked at early church affiliation of our A3b2 they are all of the English church (Church of England/Ireland etc.) as opposed to the Scottish church (Presbyterian). I think this is significant. While there are things about the Huguenots that keep them as a possibility I did try to follow the Boyd line you mention. Apparently they had come to France from Scotland (most likely) or Ireland (possibly). There really was only one family instead of more a family of families I would have expected at that time. There were few enough of them to follow to America etc. and there never is anything that looks like a good link to the individuals or quantity of Boyd's that bear A3b2. To me that has kept this possibility as fairly low.

    3. Carmen I think that this is one of about three WAYS African American people might have the Boyd name. The other is to marry a Mr Boyd - but that this would be only a very small percentage The other area, is that people took their Slave owners name and had no blood link to their Boyd master? I assume this will be the largest group (in Theory) Who was this "one Boyd" and where did he come from in the USA. The is another area where White Mr Boyd and a African could have been linked up. This is in the West Indies Islands. Cromwell sent both Scotland and Irish people as prisoners to the West Indies and I think that some of the Covenanters in Scotland were also shipped to both the America Colonies and West Indies. So this might be another area where the two sides were linked rather than in Africa. However, I do not have any "evidence" of any Boyds being part of this prisoner migration.

Would this account for African ancestry?
