Exiciting News - DNA Matches!
10 March 2019 - 7:21:29pm

Exciting news for the Montgomery and Washington Co, GA, Bridges line. Through 23&Me DNA match there is a confirmed connection between William Bridges (b.1804) of the Montgomery Co line AND the family of Asa Braswell m. Jane Ellen (Jency) Bridges. Jane Ellen was the daughter of Blake Bridges and Percy Peacock of the Washington Co line. Due to this match the line has been connected here on the site by linking William Bridges (b.1804) (whose father was previously listed as unknown) as the child of Benjamin Bridges and Rebecca Sessions (previously listed as info unknown). William is no listed as the brother of Blake -- in his proper place. We are EXCITED with this news as there was no paper trail we could follow for this info before DNA tests became publicly available.

WOW - as of 10/02/2012 we have 59,390 hits! Who would've thought?

This site will ALWAYS be FREE. We will never charge fees of any type so please feel free to enter your information. Since the start of this website I have been contacted by 13 members of my extended family that I did not know existed! You never know who is out there looking for family info.

As with any family tree, it obviously extends far beyond a single surname. Likewise, the site is unlikely ever to include all of the families in the tree. The roots of this tree are based in families from Old Montgomery and Washington County Georgia. If you family has roots in Georgia and you would like to place your family info in the site please contact us.

It is, and will probably continue to be, a work in progress. There is material here that may incomplete, questionable or erroneous. Please verify all of your information.

This site is now maintained collaboratively online by members of the tree.

Please contact us if you're a family member and would like to be a user, so that you can see more information about individuals in the database or can add information that you have. Also, for people who are related, there is a mailing list for notices of updates to the database and other relevant messages.

Have fun browsing the Family Tree section. There is plenty to see and do here. A good place to start would be with the "Pedigree Chart" which is accessible through the "Charts" drop-down menu at the top of the screen.

Up until this point the Message Forum has not been visible to the public. Plans are to update the message forum to allow entries for family surnames and allow public viewing of the information. We feel that more members will be able to find the site with this information available. We will let you know when the Message Forum has been updated!
