Brittain Family Tree

1 May, 2007 at 1:33 pm (Uncategorized)

Recently I spent an evening on ancestry.com researching my family tree. It was pretty damned amazing!! You get like 3 days to use all of the research tools for free, which includes access to massive amounts of historcal documents and archives.

Within a few hours I had traced the Brittain men back to Asa Brittain who was born in Whales somewhere between 1675 and 1688. He was married to Achea (or Achsa) in 1695. They gave birth to James, Samuel and William Brittain.

Between 1905 and 1908 it looks like they gave birth to James and moved to America where Asa and Achea died shortly after. There are no other records of the other sons either coming to America or where they died.

James Brittain lived a long life and died in 1776 … I wonder if it had something to do with the Revolutionary War!!!???

The history of the Brittain men goes back around 10 generations from myself. God it’s so FASCINATING! I want to know the stories behind all of these people, especially Asa and Achea.

    Oh man, so you’re descended from the Welsh? I’m sorry, that sh No wonder you like Iceland and its crazy language. Hopefully you’ve got some of that Tom Jones type Welsh DNA in you.

    haha, yeah. this whole time i thought it was simply english blood that came from the british side. yet, although there is that welsh blood the fact that the brittain’s have been in muuurica for so long means i am like a tooootal mut.

    i think i will name my first child something like:

    klsuyo azsdoiuh adoidhnasaiknln

    … you know, just mash the keyboard and it looks like welsh to me.
