Welcome to the Hyde Genealogy Association


The Hyde Genealogy Association is a not-for-profit, non-commercial organization that fosters communication, collaboration, and community between researchers of variants of the Hyde surname including, but not limited to, Hide, Heide, Heyde and variants with prefixes such as de, dela, von and van der. We are volunteers whose objectives are to confirm connections and validate existing family research, update family records, examine conflicting records and correct errors whenever possible, and assist with using DNA results to sort and extend family lineages.


The Hyde surname is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies.


The Hyde DNA Project 


We publish an on-line newsletter called Hyde Families every so often.
