Hello Barnett's! As you may or may not know, FTDNA has an upgrading sale going on now through March 31, 2019. If you did Low level test such as Y37, or even Y-111, Spring is a good time to take advantage of the updated price and spread family DNA information further! Maybe if a few more Barnett's would upgrade to Big Y-500 or 700, I might be able to find out who my Barnett ancestors actually were!!! I know they are there because the DNA tells me so, but so far, it has not told me who they are! There are three of us Wrights who are Barnett ancestors! We fit in somewhere in your trees. How about giving us a hand!

“so i understand that Bernard is a variation of Barnett. during my research i found a person on my list is listed as Barnett but another source has them are Bernard. was it common to change your last name like this in the 1500's? why would they do this in the first place.”

I'm going to stop here. I could go on, but honestly I would like to verify that this information is correct through DNA. Is there anyone else on here that is related to this Barnett \ Bernard family? I would love to compare with you. It's great to be able to find new family. I know I can't exactly be linked according to Y-DNA since I'm not a male Barnett, but hopefully my mtDNA will show that we are related.
Thanks for allowing me to join the Barnett Group. I look forward to linking with my Cousins on here.
Blessings and hugs,
Jenny Gaulding Low

Hello! I am looking for information on Uriah Barnett my 5th Great-grandfather. He was born in North or South Carolina around 1783 and married Keziah Islley or Istilly in Georgia around 1801. Uriah was living in Benton County, Alabama in 1840 and was postmaster there, but then they moved on to Neshoba, Mississippi by 1850 and died 1863.
Uriah's son is William Riley Barnett (moved back to Tuscaloosa, Alabama), then Bradford Kimsey Barnett, his son George Washington Barnett ( in Alabama), his son Hugh R Barnett - my great-grandfather.

I descend from Richard Barnett, son of John and Katherine Farrar Barnett. Richard and his wife Lucy Wade, had a son named George. I wish to prove George to Richard. George was born in Spartanburg. The family,was affiliated with cedarSprings and Boiling Springs churches. The church records are at Furman University, but they don’t lend them out.
Richard died intestate in Lawrence Alabama. I can not as yet find anything of use in Lawrence to link George to Richard.
Any advice or help or lore should be appreciated!

Looking for any information on William Barnett, who was born in Ireland c.1804 and is found in Manchester, Lancashire, from 1826 onwards, when he married Ellen HARDMAN. The family remained in Manchester. My descent is through William and Ellen's son James who married Emma Owen in 1850, their son John who married Mary Cummins in 1873, their son Frederick who married Mary WILKIN in Hartlepool, County Durham, in 1913, and their daughter Olga. Any connections eagerly anticipated!!

Interesting tidbit from the court documents for Franklin county, Virginia, 1786-1789, a "John Barnett" was convicted for being a horse thief on 30 Aug 1786 and was still in jail in Dec of same year. Not sure what happened after that or who he may be related to.
has a question!

“I have a new Barnett that has come up in my Y-DNA and I can find nothing about him anywhere. He is listed as Jesse Barnett b. 1777 and d. 1818. No place of birth or death is given. My most distant confirmed relative is John Barnett born about 1770 and d. around 1745 in Pulaski County, MO. He married a Nancy b. 1780 in SC and she died after 1850 in Camden County, MO. My John Barnett is DNA matched to several Barnard's, Jacob, b. 1780, d. 1821, possibly in Ireland, Zadock his brother, b. 1779 in Ireland. Several other Barnard's match as well. This Jessie Barnett b. 1777 is the only other Barnett in my Y-DNA so he is of great interest. Does anybody have any information about him?”
