The Beede Surname Project
The purpose of this project is to determine possible relationships between the various Beede lines around the world. By using a simple DNA test we hope to find out which Beedes, Bedes, Bedees, Beadys and Beedys have a common ancestor. We may also be able to help place a Beede of unknown ancestry into one of the Beede lines that we have identified so far. The Beede name in America can be traced back to Eli Bede, thought to be born around 1699 on the Isle of Jersey in the Channel Islands off the west coast of France. However, no evidence of his birth there, or anywhere else, has been found so far. Hopefully this project, if successful, will give us some much needed clues.
