My name is Bret Busby, and I have done some research into my Busby ancestry, which is traced back to England in the early 1800's.
Many people, from many different countries, have done research into their family history, involving the Busby family name, and its variants, going back much further than what I have been able to achieve, and resources have been established to assist researchers into genealogy, involving the Busby family name and its variants.
This web site needs for me to be working on it, and I hope to be, as time goes on.
A Busby name Y-DNA genetic genealogy Project, which provides for investigation of the probability of links between known Busby lines throughout the world, and between those lines and lines of families with variants of the same root as the Busby family name, including the family names Busbee, Busbey, Busbice, Busbie, Busby, Busbye, Buschebi, Bushby, Buskebi, Buskeby, Bussby, Busseby, Buzbee, Buzby, Buzzebia .
The Project involves a male with one of those family names, or a sufficiently similar family name, who is descended from a male line with the same family name, joining the Project, and being sent a kit for taking a sample of the male's DNA, and sending the sample to be analysed, and the result compared with the results of other males within the Project, to determine the probability of a relationship between the different lines.
If you are a female, who has a brother or father, or husband or son, who is still alive, who is from a direct male line of one of the above family names, and the male immediate family member, is willing to undergo the genealogy Y-DNA testing, then this could be used to determine the probability of your family's descent from, and, relationship to, another known line with one of the above family names. Similarly, if you are a female and your maiden name is Busby or one of the above family names, and you have an uncle or a male cousin, who is still alive, who has the same family name, and that male family member, is willing to undergo the genealogy Y-DNA testing, then this could be used to determine the probability of your family's descent from, and, relationship to, another known line with one of the above family names.
My preference is for, and, I recommend, joining the BUSBY name Y-DNA Project, and undergoing the 37 marker Y-DNA test and the FamilyFinder test, for all males with the family name Busby, or one of the above family names or names similar to the name BUSBY, where the biological father has the family name BUSBY, or one of the above family names or names similar to the name BUSBY, and is of a bloodline with the family name BUSBY, or one of the above family names or names similar to the name BUSBY.
My understanding (and, this is my understanding as a layman, and I do not pretend to be an expert in genetics),
from information from the familytreedna.com web site as viewed on 27 July 2015,
is that a match for males with the same surname or with similar surnames, with the familytreedna.com Y-DNA37 test,
Probability that your Most Recent Common Ancestor lived no longer than this many generations ago:
Thus, from the table, as an example, if two males with the same family name, or with sufficiently similar family names, undergo the 37 marker Y-DNA test, and all 37 markers match (thus, a "zero genetic distance"), then the probability that they have a Most Recent Common (paternal) Ancestor within the last 5 generations, is 90% and, the probability that they have a Most Recent Common (paternal) Ancestor within the last 7 generations, is 95%.
That is my understanding.
The Busby name Y-DNA genetic genealogy Project web page, with applicable fees for tests done within the Project, is at https://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Busby .
The facility also provides for the results of your genetic Y-DNA analysis, being compared with people from lines with a family name of the above group of names, who are yet to join the group, so that, if someone from your family line, has a genealogy analysis performed, and your family line is found unlikely to be related to existing members of the group, it may happen that someone in the future, joins the group, and their genetic Y-DNA analysis, when compared to a sample or samples from your family line, shows a distinctly high probability, of the lines being related.
The results from the Project, can also show the geographic distribution, of different known lines of related people with the Busby family name, or one of its variants.

A set of genealogy mailing lists relating to the family name Busby, is listed, with descriptions, and how to subscribe to each list, on the web page at http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/surname/b/busby.html .
If you are descended from a Busby line, and are interested in researching the genealogy of your Busby ancestry (including finding existing family lines that are related to yours, and, sharing research results, and, seeking previously unknown, live relatives), I recommend visiting that web page, and subscribing to the appropriate mailing lists, and posting an initial message introducing yourself and your lineage, and the geographical history of your lineage, as much as you know of it, including where you are now located (country/state/province), and posting queries seeking information, to the appropriate mailing list(s).
Also existing, is a genealogy mailing list relating to the family name Buzbee, and it is listed, with its description, and how to subscribe to the list, on the web page at http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/surname/b/buzbee.html .
Also existing, is a genealogy mailing list relating to the family name Buzby, and it is listed, with its description, and how to subscribe to the list, on the web page at http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/surname/b/buzby.html .
I recommend visiting the appropriate web pages for mailing lists, mentioned above, if the names listed, are similar to a family name in your ancestry, and subscribing to the appropriate list(s), and, posting messages, as described above, to enhance your research, and, the research of others, who may be related.
