Joseph Marion Bracewell Reunion
April 17th, 2005

 Our reunion is open to anyone that descends from or connects to the Bracewell family. If you want to know more about the Bracewell history or want to meet new Bracewell contacts then I encourage you to attend this years reunion. 65 years of genealogy research will be displayed as well as a 40 foot long family tree. New genealogy research will be discussed and some of the best potluck home cooked food will be available for lunch.



Bracewell World Family Tree: The new family tree is now in beta testing and will allow all Bracewell family members to add their gencom files to compare and match them into one large Bracewell family tree.


  Bracewell family history archive, contains over sixty-five years of genealogy research on the Bracewell family.

   The site was started in May, 2001 to archive the hundreds of research documents from our families genealogist.

   Our researchers have been considered the leaders in Bracewell genealogy information and their work has been spread across the world. Searcy Bracewell Jr. (The Texas Lawyer), Travis Bracewell, and Joe Taylor are just a few of the family members who's original research has been published here.

   Although not all the information has been proven you may find it valuable in researching your family. A lot of misleading information on the Bracewell family can be found on the internet and that is not the intentions of this site.

This is a local history site for topics in and around the Barnoldswick area including Bracewell itself. (Both in England)

There is a huge amount of historical information, photographs, maps regarding the Bracewells all available to be viewed online.


I will be adding several new features to the site in the near future. Take a look here to get a sneak peak. These services will be moderately priced just to cover expenses.

Own a Family History Print  that can be framed.
 (81/2 X 11 or 11 X 17 print size) This history starts in the early 1500's and continues to present day. Prices will start at $5.00. If you are interested just email me for more information. (I will add a sample soon)

Does anyone know the correct connections from Parson Robert Bracewell in Isle of Wight County, Virginia to the Richard Bracewell of Edgecombe County, N. C. ?
