AUGUSTA/WASHINGTON CO. BERRYS
This is my attempt to make available my personal efforts as well as those of all who have shared family information with me. Where I have obtained the information from original sources, I have cited those sources. The bulk of the information on this site, however, was provided by others or was gathered from other sites. I have cited those secondary sources so that those interested may try to validate that information. As with much of the information you find on the internet, you should take this with a grain of salt. I can only vouch for the research I have done myself.
As is often the case with this sort of research, many of the items presented as fact are what might almost be classified as "common knowledge" even though we didn't personally experience it. Unfortunately, our "common knowledge" is sometimes in error and we welcome the opportunity to correct any errors by replacing it with correct information with citations of sources.
We are always happy to share information with other researchers and solicit your additions, corrections or clarifications.
I try to gather and publish all or part of the following information for the members of this family: full names, birth, marriage, death and burial dates and places, other interesting facts and stories, and photos.
As well as the U.S. lines, this database includes lines from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and Ireland which, although we've not yet discovered the documentary connection, have been shown by DNA testing to all be genetically connected through a common ancestor.
One of my hopes in developing and presenting this database is that it will encourage the DNA testing of living Berry surnamed male descendants of the persons listed herein with the aim of confirming or refuting the relationships shown insofar as possible.
If you are such a person, or know of such a person whom you would like to sponsor, or just have questions about genetic genealogy or DNA testing generally, I'd be happy for you to drop me a line by clicking this link.
To navigate this database, click on a person's name in a preceding or succeeding generation to go there; click on a name in the current generation to see Notes and Sources.
