Welcome to CONNECTIONS. This website is a way for us to share many years of gathering and connecting the family lineages that shape our shared genealogy. We are specifically tracking the four major paternal family lines that directly branch from our daughter, Amanda Grace Brady.

Brady, Downey, Parker, Meyer

The family tree for surname Brady currently stands at 7 generations dating back to the early to mid 1800's with John Brady in Ireland.

The family tree for surname Downey currently stands at 5 generations dating back to about 1900 with Harland Downey.

The family tree for surname Parker currently stands at 13 generations dating back to 1617 with Capt. James Parker in England.

The family tree for surname Meyer currently stands at 6 generations dating back to 1851 with Julius F. Meyer in Germany.

This has been, and will continue to be, the result of many people's combined time and effort, research and ultimate sharing of information ... all of us trying to compile the most accurate and complete family geneology possible.

If you find an error or discover missing information, please let us know! It's very important to us that the information be correct in these family trees. Send us information by using the "Familytree Update Form" linked above or email us at info@gbees.org or old-fashioned way at:

PO Box 43
Cobleskill, NY 12043

We would also like to inlcude photos of all family members. The goal is to attach a photo gallery to each name if it's possible. When you visit the family tree pages and see a name that is bold and underlined, you can click the link and be taken to that person´s photo gallery. We are continuing to build new photo pages and add photos to the existing ones all the time, so check back often to see what's new.

Lastly, we are happily linking family-owned businesses to this site so that we may all prosper from this shared resource. Gbees.org has been online for several years, benefitting from search longevity and verified legitimacy that new websites simply don't have. It has also been built using up-to-date web technologies for accessibility and Search Engine Optimization. What that means for your business is increased traffic and, hopefully, higher profits. Besides, sharing what we do helps us to support one another, and that is, after all, what family is all about.

Please remember that this work will never be "finished". Every time someone has a new baby or finds a long lost cousin we will be adding CONNECTIONS here. If you'd like printed copies of any genealogical record included here or a related lineage, please feel free to contact us. A report can be printed and mailed to you. Please help us to continue our work.
