Folded, in the back of Katie’s scrapbook, from her grandma, is this piece of paper.  I didn’t have Sarah’s paternal grandparents, in my PAF.

After we added these grandparents to Katie’s pedigree, we tried to find some Google Juice.

In the Brownbridge Family Genealogy Forum, we found this:

Hi Connie,

I think I am a relative. My gggrandfather was William Brownbridge who was born in 1821 in Snaith, Yorkshire England. He had a younger brother James who was born in 1830. Their father was a Thomas Brownbridge who married a Ann Blacker. Thomas the father did not come to the USA. I am related to William’s daughter Annie Brownbridge George. William did come to the USA only about 30 years later. If we make a match, I would love to share information with you. I have a number of other relatives who are also related who would love to get in touch with you. You can E-mail me at Would love to hear from you.


After I left a reply, for Nancy Day, asking for a confirmation of dates, for Annie, I found that Nancy has also posted in the Teed Family Genealogy Forum.

That was confirmation, to me, that Nancy descends through the same line as my children’s father.

Today’s searching, gifted us two more generations, behind Annie.  How exciting!
