the Brasswell book…

The Ancestry of David Bracewell: Including the Allied Southern Families of Braswell, Brazil, Bay, Price, Passmore, Gage, Prillaman, and Allen (Google eBook)

This book is written by Carey Bracewell…. its an e-book you can download for 3 or 4 bucks…

My own research into George Anderson of Isle of Wight, Virginia first got me curious of the “Bracewell” characters who had property nearby… this started maybe 1999 or so… I would search the web and kept getting “hits” which were authored by this Carey Bracewell guy.  He was relentless.

If you have any questions about the Brasswells in your own research… buy the book.  My hat is tipped to Mr. Bracewell… if I want to reference a Brasswell in my own research I just consult his book… I  trust it.

…for a chuckle… you can still probably “Google up” some of his very early web posts where he defended his theory (at the time) that several of the Brasswell descendants were “bastards” as we say… it all evolved into a grand dispute with ruffled feathers, semi outrage and some hand wringing…it wound up in the Great DNA Chase that is fashionable today. I found it all highly amusing.  Carey was right and he proved it.
