About Us

The Association of American Boyers, Inc. is a volunteer, non-profit organization whose purpose is to cultivate family ties and preserve genealogical records.

The first Boyer family gathering was held on August 20, 1905, in a grove near Christ (Mertz) Church at Dryville, Berks County, PA. The reunion was organized by the family of the late Daniel W. Boyer (3-AZ38) in honor of his widow, Mrs. Judith Youse Boyer. From this beginning, the gathering became an annual event, and quickly enlarged to include all Boyer/Beyer families.

The first edition of "The American Boyers" was published in 1915, with supplements in 1916, 1918, and 1924. These were compiled by the late Rev. Dr. Charles C. Boyer (7-A1621441) of Kutztown, PA.
