|Beginning of David Brown Letter|
(Click to enlarge)
I believe that everyone needs to be remembered. And so, sometime in the early 2000s, I decided to try to uncover the Brown story. At that time, there was little information on the internet or in libraries, and even less about Irish genealogy, so progress was very slow to say nothing of my naivety about doing genealogical research. Since then, particularly in the last few years, extensive information, at least for Ireland, has become available. Using the letter as an inspiration and road map, I have been able to uncover a large amount of information on the Brown family, and, continue to do so.
To ensure the information is not lost, and to share the information with other researchers, I will document my research and findings in this blog. It is an ongoing project. I will include clips of the letter where appropriate and information uncovered as a result of the research. And, of course, I welcome comments, corrections and any additional information others have uncovered.
