  1. Hello,

    I have looked at the list of names that you have and we appear to share quite a few, including famous family members. George Augustine Washington is my 21st cousin 7x removed. Mary Ball, George’s mother is also my cousin. Mary married her cousin. I have been able to trace the entire family back over 5000 years, if the archaeology and historical finds and documents are presumed correct. I have also found a line going through the Exilarchs of Babylon, the High Priests of the Temple in Jerusalem, and even lines going back into ancient Israel (Judea and Samaria). I would love to compare notes with you and learn more about my extended family. I am on Ancestry as member name “BBBDB2b” and you can message me there if you wish, and if you are on Ancestry, I can give you access to my main family tree which is private. God bless.
