Mike Boyd will be traveling from Australia to Ireland and on to
America on his trip back home. He will be making several stops as he
crosses America, beginning in New England and ending in California. He
will be in touch and making more announcements on the Boyd list at
Rootsweb with regard to details.
He's hoping to make connections and meet in person with as many Boyds
as possible during his American visit. Now's the time to get your
genealogies together and print a copy for him to take home. He's got
quite a wonderful knowledge of the migration of our Ancestors. If at
all possible, you will want to take this opportunity to meet with him.
