Dr. Arthur Thomas Corey, died from a fall on 4 Dec 2018 at the age of 99 in Fort Collins, Larimer, Colorado. In 1999,
Art took on two duties for the Cory Family Society. The first being interim President until 2001 when Fred Corey, one
of Art's students, took over as president. The second project was coordinating DNA research with the help of our late
genealogist, Charlotte Muller, to determine the genetic relationships between the three main Cory/Corey family lines
in North America. He has been a powerful influence on all who have known him including those who have studied and worked
with him and has been a leader in his field of research. His final goal to become a centenarian was unfulfilled; he
missed by only 4 short months. Moore...

Carolyn Corey, secretary
A project was undertaken by the Cory Family Society to determine the genetic relationships between Cory/Corey family
lines in North America and Britain by analyzing Y-chromosome markers. We wished to learn whether or not the progenitors:
William of Portsmouth, John of Long Island, and Thomas of Chelmsford were genetically related. Each had arrived in America
during the period 1635-1645. We also wished to learn where in Britain the progenitors lived before arriving in America,
and to what current Cory lines in Britain they might be related.
Don't understand DNA - No problem. Download DNA Basics for
a understandable overview.
Genealogies of each branch will be published as time permits. I am not able to publish
new information to the site every time a database is updated. New information (additions, corrections, changes) are made
almost everyday. Please contact the
and he will be happy provide the latest updates.
In addition to this location, the primary databases have been published to Ancestry.com.
Inquires and Corrections
The Cory Family Society welcomes inquires/corrections. When sending inquires or corrections,
please indicate which branch of the family you are inquiring about.
The Cory Family Society publishes a newsletter three times a year to its members. All
past issues of the newsletters are on-line, in PDF format.
