BOYT/E - BOYET/T/E NEWSLETTER
A big thanks to all those who so graciously supplied articles for the Newsletter! The issues are much larger now, and that should appeal to all subscribers as well as your editor. The more information we can distribute, the better our chances of making the needed connections.
Another large issue is already in the making for Volume III, No. 3; it will include the materials collected for the BOYT/BOYETT families in the state of Mississippi, with some ancestral connections, and all the census and other records which have been located for documentation. The issue has been placed on a computer, and is now being edited and reviewed by one of the chief participants in this project, Frances Parkinson.
Anyone who has evidence or sound oral tradition of a French Huguenot origin of their BOYT/BOYETTE ancestors should contact Deloyce Conrad who is having a search made in the earliest French and Dutch/Flemish (BOYDT) repositories. A photocopy of the earliest Contemporary record of your ancestor is needed, along with your reason for believing the Huguenot origin, even if the ancestor sailed from a British or Irish port. She also wishes to contact any descendants or researchers of the Huguenot family BOYD who arrived in SC before 13 July 1687. Mr. James BOYD was the son of Jean BOIDET and a native of de Bordeaux Province de Guienne. His children were Jeanne, Elizabeth, Jacques, & Jean Auguste born in Carolina.
