    Jacob Boehme of Lancaster Co., PA (ca 1693-1781) and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624) [in part]
    October 31, 2002
    ... A cousin sent me an e-mail today that suggested that I visit a particular website so that I could see the pedigree of Jacob Boehme of Lancaster Co., PA (ca 1693-1781) traced all the way back to the 1400s through Jakob Boehme (1575-1624) of Görlitz, Silesia, also known as "the Mystic." ... There is absolutely no proof of this lineage. Any records that may have existed to prove this connection were destroyed during one of the many wars in this area prior to the 18th century. ... At some point, perhaps, a DNA study may "prove" or "disprove" this theory.

    Y-DNA Study for the Boehm/Beam/Beahm Family of Lancaster Co., PA
    August 30, 2003
    Starting in 2002, a Y-DNA surname project was initiated for male (agnatic) descendants of Jacob Boehme (1693-1781) of Lancaster Co., PA and his male relatives. This Y-DNA surname project is being conducted by Family Tree DNA (www.familytreedna.com) of Houston, TX. The goal of the study is to identify descendants of Jacob Boehme (1693-1781), his probable brother, Rudolph Boehm (of Lancaster, Co., PA), and other Boehm/Beam/Beahm families who might be related, e.g. Samuel Boehm of Shenandoah Co., VA., whether or not source records exist to confirm the relationships.

    Thus far, only seven males have particpated. At least one descendant from each branch of the Pennsylvania, Canada, and Virginia families have been tested to date and the Y-DNA results confirm that all of these families are related. A probable descendant of Rudolph Boehm has also been tested and he is also related based on Y-DNA comparisons. A couple of other males with the surname of Boehm, Beam, Beahm, etc. have been tested and they do not appear to be related.

    For anyone interested in participating in this project, the current costs are:

    Y-DNA 12 Marker Test: $159. ($99. for members of the surname project)

    Y-DNAPlus 25 Marker Test: $229. ($169. for members of the surname project)

    The Y-DNA test kit is delivered by mail and is self-administered. DNA fragments from a buccal smear (swab on the inside of the mouth) are collected to determine the Most Recent Common Ancestor. The Y-DNA samples are compared to those already in the database and if they match on 12 Y-DNA markers, then there is a 50% probability of a common ancestor within the past 14 generations (about 350 years). For a 25 Y-DNA marker match, there is a 50% probability of a common ancestor within the past 7 generations.

    Any Boehm/Beam/Beahm males interested in participating in this study can contact me directly or contact Family Tree DNA.
