I am researching my Brewer lineage, attempting to verify all facts back to the George Brewer and Sarah Lanier union in the late 1600's. Although data tends to claim that this union was the start of my Brewer line in the New World, there are several discontinuities along the path. If you would like to share information for this branch of the Brewer family tree, please email me or give me a phonecall.

From other Brewer researchers and the internet, I have assembled the following links to my past ancestors. While some of these are accurate, others are what is considered correct although I have not personally verified them. If you have verification of any associations that I show as unverified, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Please note that I use Family Tree Maker 6.0 as my main genealogy software. I will be updating my information on this site periodically in GEDCOM format. I also belong to a group of related Brewer genealogists who communicate as a group via email. We currently have about 30 or so members. If you would like to be a part of this group, email me and I will pass your request on to the group administrator.
