|On a Saturday back in 1986, we held an Autry family reunion in the Pine Hill, Alabama City Hall and organized the Henry Milton Autrey Family Organization. The organization included at president, treasurer, family-line representatives, and by-laws approved by vote of all in attendance.|
A small four-page family newsletter was distributed at that reunion. Then my brother, Robert Autry, and I wondered if a national Autry family newsletter was available. So, we checked Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine and other publications, but couldn't find one. So, mom, dad and a couple of cousins helped us launch "The Autry Bulletin: A Genealogical and Historical Quarterly". For three years, I served as editor, receiving and publishing submissions from all over the country. Then the editorship was handed off to someone else. All in all, the publication survived for ten years.
Having begun my genealogical research in the early 70's, long before the current 'information age', I 'paid my genealogical dues' visiting numerous cemetaries and courthouses.
Since that time, we've established the "Cornelius Autry-Immigrant, Descendants" located at www.corneliusautrydescendants.myfamily.com . If you are in any way an Autry descendant, you belong on this website. ***All you have to do is send me an E-mail and request a password.***
Technology has now taken another stride which helps to break down the brick wall thrown up when the ancestral 'paper trail' ends. So, we've also established the Autry DNA Project, located at: www.familytreedna.com/public/Autry-DNA-Project . The project includes: Artray, Audry, Aughtery, Aughtree, Aughtrey, Aughtry, Auteray, Autery, Autray, Autre, Autree, Autrey, Autrie, Autry, Awtery, Awtray, Awtrey, Awtry, Caughtrie, Caughtry, Cautry, Coughtrie, Daltry, Daughtry, D'Aughtry, D'Autery, D'Autrey, D'Autry, MacAuchtraigh, MacAughtrie, MacAutraigh, MacAutrey, MacAutry, MacCautrie, MacCautry, MacOrtrie, MacUchtrie, MacUchtry, McAuchtry, McAughtrie, McAutrey, McAutry, McCaughtry, McCautry, McOrtie, McOrty, McUchtraigh, McUchtrie, Orterry, Ortray, Ottery, Ottrey, Outray, Outry.
