Project Purpose

Have you reached that proverbial "brick wall" in your search for ancestors? Join the thousands of genealogists who are making new connections through genetics.

DUBOSE, DUBOIS, DUBOISE, DUBOICE, DUBOYS, DUBOSC, DUBUSK, DEBUSK and other variants of this French surname are welcome to join our Y-DNA paternal project. Many Americans with these surnames descend from Huguenot refugees Isaac DuBosc and Suzanne Couillandeau, who settled on the Santee River in South Carolina in the late 1680s...or from sons of Chretien and Cornelia DuBois, who emigrated to America in 1660 and settled in New York. Join us and add your histories to our growing project.

Project Update

Some of the loyal visitors to this site have no doubt noticed it has been quite a while since there were any updates or new participants. This site was started and designed by Robert Del Griffith, my father. He loved his heritage and you can't imagine how much he loved exploring his history and connecting with all of you. He passed unexpectedly last year, on March 11th, 2015. It has taken some time to find myself in the right place to have both the time and the courage to pick up his work.

I apologize to all of you who have been left wondering what happened without any communication. If you will continue to be patient with me and work with me I intend to do my best to honor my Dad's legacy and passion. I have connected with a few of the individuals who have reached out to me but if you would like to contribute content, feedback, or become a participant either within the project or as an administrator and curator, please feel free to connect with me directly. I sincerely look forward to working with you all.

From one proud Dubois to another,
John Commodore
