Looking for Brown Ancestors?

Post your Query here.
Let the rest of the world help you

Looking for a Brown ancestor? You can post a query/message here to help you locate others who might already have the very information and records on those hard-to-find ancestors you are searching for. You may luck up and find someone else with an old family Bible with all the details you have been searching for. This Internet site is sponsored by the Brown Family Club, a national, non-profit family club. Go to our HOME page to learn more about the Family Club -- you can also jump from there to our family HISTORY pages, the family NEWSLETTER and our other sites.

This is the wonderful thing about the worldwide Internet--you can reach unknown kinfolk all over the nation, and even a few overseas! The World Wide Web now covers the entire world; as more and more family historians go online, distant relatives are becoming easier to find. The lost branches of your family are just as eager as you to learn more about their heritage and most are willing to share information on ancestors. The biggest problem in the past has simply been making the connection. Now with the Internet, that has been made a lot easier for you.

Your message here in our Query section can reach many relatives previously unknown to you. We hope our site will become the hub of information and research for all those looking for Brown ancestors.

TIP for preparing a query: give as much information as you can . . .

about your ancestor. The more information you include with your query, the better the chance of someone else being able to "link up". If you don't know dates, then estimate a time period ("1760's"; or abt "1810", etc.). If you know these facts, be sure and include:

One-line queries usually don't get much response simply because there isn't enough information for anyone to make a connection so try to provide as much data as you can. Please limit your query to about one-half of a regular typed page.

Remember -- someone else might not know about your ancestor but they may know about a brother or sister and thus be able to help you make a connection.

Members of the Brown Family Club may post messages here free for an indefinite period. Others may post a message for brief periods (about a month).
