Latest Y-DNA test results for the Boettcher Y-DNA Project.

Attached are the latest results of our Boettcher Y-DNA Project.  So far, we have not found any new connections to the Boettcher family of Paris, Bessarabia.  However, we recently helped connect 2 branches of the Beresan District Bettger family. 

Our sample size is still small, and we are continuing to solicit participants for this project.  If you are male with surname Boettcher or a variant spelling, please contact us to find out more!
