"BOATH. From the old lands of Both in Angus (Ret ours Forfar, 154, 385, 449, etc.). Hugh de Boath, grandfather of Hector Boece, progenitor of the Scottish family of Boethius, is said to have acquired the lands of Bal- -inbridget, now Panbride, "along with the heiress in marriage, in reward for his services to David n at the battle of Dupplin in 1332" (Bamff, p. 26).

David Both is recorded in Cottoun of Gardin, 1606 (St. Andrews), and William Bothe in Kirkburne of Cortachy, 1633 (Brechin). Still current. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Boath ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!

Birth, Death and Marriage records are often the best method of making the links to the Boath Genealogy that will form part of your family tree. Although records vary from country to country, they are normally the most formal record of a person's relations. From the sources below you will be able to find a birth record and, from that, a birth certificate can be ordered which lists the names of the mother and father, taking you back another generation in your tree. A marriage certificate may also list the names of the respective fathers of the bride and groom which may then help you to find them earlier in life on a census record enabling you to fill out more detail in the Boath family tree.
