Please Add Bright surname to your tags on family list.
Hello. I do not have direct ancestors with the Bright surname, but I do have a first cousin once removed who does. I'm managing a few profiles under that surname in my research for her and her children. I'll add your sticker to those profiles, and please let me know if you come across them and need any information. :)
I would like to join the Bright Name Study. My paternal grandfather is a direct descendant of JOHANNES MICHAEL BRECHT. We are currently awaiting Y testing from one of his sons although we have DNA links to Bright/Brecht descendants on ancestry.
