JoAnn is testing her brother, James, who will be #126, our 135th member! As soon as she is able to get his yAncestry together we'll have some idea whether he expects to match any of our current members.
John's, #113, panels of his Y-Refine37to67 upgrade have been dribbling in 'under-the-radar'. The order has now been completed and is posted. John is a
Fayette Co. Berry.
SMGF has just updated their mtDNA and Y-chromosome databases and I have begun the process of combing through them to discover new Berrys and to obtain additional markers posted for those of us already there. I have (naturally) started with the Augusta/Washington Co. Berrys but, never fear, I'll get to all of them in due course. James, #102, has 5 additional markers which are now posted.
More exciting, though, are two new Augusta/Washington Co. Berrys, as yet either unidentified or uncontacted. In the first category is the grandson of Lewis Russell Berry and Anna Mueller. He matches the Augusta/Washington Co. Berrys 30/30. Here's his pedigree:If you are this person, or if you recognize him, please contact me.
I also found James Russell Berry who is part of the group we call the Hawkins Co. Berrys who are also part of the larger Augusta/Washington Co. Berry family. James matches 34/37 and this is his pedigree -I've emailed James. Hope he responds.
