LFA at a glance... If this is your first visit to our website, take a few minutes to get to know us - we've been around for over 60 years! Find out how Howard Lyon's concept of collecting and documenting Lyon(s) in 1951 resulted in the creation of The Lyon's Tale and provided the foundation for the Lyon(s) Families Association. Contact us and find out if your Lyon ancestors have already been documented in one of our Lyon(s) families. And, if they aren't in our database, we'll work with you to find a connection. After you have connected with one of the LFA families, we hope you'll consider membership. We thrive on touching base with all our Lyon(s) descendants and always welcome new members. And your dues will ensure that our Lyon(s) records will be preserved for future generations.
We appreciate contributions of your Lyon(s) genealogy to our database. If you have already contributed, we thank you - and please, remember to keep us up-to-date.
Since our founding over 60 years ago, the LFA has been dedicated to the same unwavering principles:
To collect, assemble and distribute complete, accurate
Lyon(s) genealogy information
To serve as a worldwide forum for researchers
To collect family histories and anecdotes to round out our database
To foster family unity and pride in the family name
We maintain a genealogy database of over 130,000 individuals and families. See our Publications page to learn how to get a copy.
We list many Lyon ancestors such as Henry, William, Thomas and Richard - early settlers in New England.
That's where you'll also find out about our our archived (since 1951) Lyon's Tale quarterly publication. The complete set is now on DVD for just $20.00 here.
Lyon(s) DNA Project
Lyon(s) Family Association is cooperating with the FTDNA testing site to study the DNA of Lyon(s) descendants in order to attempt to discover common ancestors. The goal of the project is to see if DNA testing can discover a link between the early Lyon(s) Ancestors or Progenitors. Particularly useful is the testing of men named Lyon(s). Combined with traditional genealogical research the results can be compared to other Lyon(s) men. Using genetics and the markers on the Y chromosome, similar patterns may become clear. We urge Lyon(s) men to submit a test sample to Family Tree DNA for the 67 or 111 marker test. Learn about our ongoing project and other topics related to Lyon(s) DNA. Here
