Welcome to the Hyde Genealogy Association

See our latest blog post here

The Hyde Genealogy Association is a not-for-profit, non-commercial organization that fosters communication, collaboration, and community between researchers of variants of the Hyde surname. Variants include, but are not limited to, Hide, Heide and Heyde, and prefixes such as de, dela, von and van der. We are volunteers whose objectives are to confirm connections and validate existing family research, update family records, examine conflicting data and correct errors whenever possible, and assist with using DNA results to sort and extend family lineages.

The Hyde surname is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

Interested in using DNA to investigate Hyde ancestors? Then you need to have a male Hyde relative do a Y-DNA test. Currently ONLY one major DNA company does Y-DNA testing, i.e., Family Tree DNA. The DNA testing companies Ancestry and 23andMe don’t do Y-DNA tests. They do a different DNA test called the “autosomal DNA test” that is useful for identifying genetic cousins within a few generations but not useful for identifying Hyde ancestors going back hundreds of years.
