New DNA results confirm our belief that the Braund/Brawns from Witheridge (who were temporarily allocated the branch number 13) are indeed part of branch 6, descending from John and Florence of Northlew.
Two members joined at Chris Braund’s talk on the Braunds today in Exeter. Between them they represent 3 branches of the family – 1, 3 & 21.
DNA results are in for branch 18. As expected, these show strong similarities to branches 2 & 5, supporting our theory for the origins of branch 18. Now we could do with just a bit more documentary evidence to substantiate it.
All are welcome at our Christmas get together on 25 November. Booking Forms can be downloaded from here.
Electronic September journals have already been sent and the paper versions are on their way. Learn about the newly merged branches of the family plus other goodies.
For the second time in a month we have merged two branches of the Braund family. Branch 20 has now been connected to branch 4 of the family. Full details will be in the September journal.
Reporting the exciting news that Branch 16 has now been linked to branch 4, giving former branch 16 members another two generation to their family tree. Full details will be in the September Journal and members of branch 16 will be given details of the new top to their tree.
Wishing all our members safe journeys as they travel to North Devon for next weekend’s reunion.
The dates for next year’s Autralasian reunion are now 23-26 March 2017. Join us in Yorke Peninsula South Australia
