  • First-hand information. Entered by Barbara Shoff at registration.

I am trying to find info on my immigrant Brady family. We know they were in the colonies in 1742 [date edited by Elizabeth Brady, 8/9/17] when Hugh Brady was 21. Would love to find marriage record to his wife (possibly in Ireland) Hannah McCormick. Would also like to know what ship they arrived on. These are questions that no one has yet answered.

Love the Irish! The Hugh Brady and Hannah McCormick line we among the earliest settlers in the American Colonies. They settled near Shippensberg, PA and raised their sons and daughters here. This family boasts several Revolutionary War Patriots. They contracted with the Crown and cleared roads in PA. The Descendants of Hugh and Hannah Brady Association holds family reunions on the land in Shippensberg, Pa which is owned by a Brady descendant, who has restored the original cabin and barn.

Looking for family tied to David Pritchard/Catherine Sharp through their daughter Sarah who married E.V. Rogers. Their daughter married E.R. Carter; their son is Dr. Clarence E. Carter.

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with

Welcome! We are glad you are here!  Please let Kitty Smith know if you are interested in joining our DNA Project or our FTDNA Project.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘private w/ public biography & family tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

We also encourage you to join our Google+ Community for DNA discussions, questions & new information.

Hi Barbara, You've marked your relationship to your parents 'confirmed with DNA' but the only test displayed on your profile is yours. If your test matches some of your relatives, their profiles and tests should be displayed on WikiTree, and you need a statement on your profile explaining how those matches confirm your relationship to your parent. Please see this page:

Please let me know if you'd like some help to do that. Kay Wilson
