Burright Family History

ByKevin Groenhagen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Burright Family History covers the story of the Burrights (then Barheits) from their time in Recife, Brazil, during the mid-1650s to New Netherland and beyond. The reader will follow Cornelius Burright from New York to the Old Northwest and each of his children and their descendants as they took part in the settlement of the west. It is not an exaggeration to say that Burright history is American history. Chapter 1 covers the Burright family before Cornelius Burright, who was perhaps the first Burright. Chapter 2 discusses Cornelius Burright and his time in Ohio and, later, Illinois. Chapters 3-12 cover each of Cornelius Burright’s children who survived to adulthood. Each of these chapters includes a list of descendants to the fifth generation (with Cornelius Burright being the first generation). Chapter 13 discusses the relatively recent introduction of science to genealogy through the use of DNA testing. The author writes about how he used several DNA testing companies to find hundreds of Burright cousins throughout the United States and, perhaps, Norway. Finally, the author added a name index of more than 20 pages to help direct readers to where he discusses their ancestors and cousins in the book. The author also hopes the name index will help readers identify distant cousins that they discover through DNA testing.
