The bulk of the information on this site was gleaned from HeritageQuest online census images. I have attempted to list all the Hyde County Berrys shown in the various censuses from 1850 through 1930 and have supplemented that data with information from the Hyde Co. GenWeb pages. I have done the best I could with the spellings and many of the relationships.   By necessity, I guessed at some of these relationships and have no way of knowing about others that should be shown. We welcome the opportunity to correct any errors or show relationships between those in the database.   Just let me know.
My purpose in developing and presenting this database is to 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.
This site is very much a work in progress, both the research and the look and feel of the layout itself. This site has been developed with Reunion 9.07 which is a new release of the Reunion database. I believe that the source citations may still need some tweaking but they seem to have remedied most other issues I was aware of.
