BRIDGES    (Bridge, Bridger, Bridgers, Briggs)
DNA Project Provider: Family Tree DNA
Website: Bridges Surname Project
The Bridges Surname Y-chromosome, DNA Project was officially begun on March 12, 2003 when we registered with, the company, Family Tree DNA for our Group and were given the discounted rate for each individual test. Having read many success stories in matches with DNA for genealogical purposes, we decided that it is time to try to advance our research in the many cases where there are no written documents to help to prove our ancestry.
The success of our Project will depend on the number of participants who join our testing group, as well the documentation of the research connected with each line reqarding dates and locations of birth, death, marriage, etc.

          Please, contact as many BRIDGES researchers as you can to encourage their participation in our Project to help to ensure its success.

Maddox
DNA Project Provider: Family Tree DNA
Website: Maddox Surname Project
The goals of the Maddox DNA Project are:

Confirm relationships with a specific ancestor where we have only circumstantial evidence.

Compare our surname (Maddox) with those in other states/provinces or countries where we believe, but have no documentary proof, our earliest-known ancestor was born.

Determine whether our line is all European, or mixed with Native American, or Native Australian, etc. For example, the Maddox surname is common among Melungeons who were usually Spanish or Portugese who arrived in North America in the 1500s and intermarried with native Americans. Another example is the red-headed Indians found at the head of the Missouri River on the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805.

Our genealogy data thus far traces us back to the British Isles, and even France. But our DNA tests show that in the ancient past, all Maddoxes of all spellings are of either Nordic (Viking) blood or central European. Independent studies have indicated many of the British Isles are Nordic. The Vikings invaded the British Isles and many stayed and intermarried. Will our Maddox DNA tests continue to show only Nordic and central European origins (haplotype)?


Mabry, Maybury, Mayberry
DNA Project Provider: Family Tree DNA

          Those who came to America include: Francis Maybury (1679 VA); Thomas Maybury (ca 1700 PA); William & Richard Mayberry (1730 MA); Frederick Mayberry (ca 1750 NJ); Richard Hawkes Maybury (to Missouri in 1868); etc.
