Re: Brownen or Browand

In Reply to: Brownen or Browand by Bonnie Litt of 22

Dear Bonnie:
I remember your name from somewhere and may have contacted you before. I wish to point you to Browand info. So I have looked through my old emails and did not find anything from or to you.
I will repeat here an email to everyone interested.

I have a LITT, William LeRoy /-Spouce - Bonnie Jean WAGNER- in my tree. Are they in yours?
The below book (my Religious & .......) tells of the many spelling varations exist. It gives one example of a land deed where BROWAND is spelled 3 different ways on the same piece of paper.


This is to point you to many Browands & variations of that name Such as Brovont, Prowant etc.

You may find my web page at:
(Please copy & paste into your internet browser)

There are about 3500 - 4000 names related to the Browands

My personal web page info comes from my own research over the years, plus. I have finished typing in two books on Browands\Browant\Prowants ( there are many ways to spell the name.) My Mother was a Browand from Kendallville, Indiana. Most relatives came from NE Indiana & Northern Ohio.

I copied names from "Ephram Brovont 1818-1885 Elizabeth Bowser 1824-1891" the whole book. (90 some pages +) by Ray O. Brovont Goshen, Indiana (now passed on.)

I also copied About 1/3 (80 pages+/-) of the book "My Religious and Paternal Heritage 1708-1968 by Pauline Shafer Tracy". (Both are out of print now.) It has a lot on the Browands\Prowants names + history etc. I did not copy much of the historical stuff, only names
& relationships.

I have left in the gedcom file all LDS data and there is a small % of names of my wife's relation. I have decided not to include the names of the living, (GEDCOM file) although they are in the
above names listing, on the page.

The file is about 950 KB. It has 4500+ names with the relationships. Iffin you want a copy of all or more likely part, down load it for [Free]) If you are related & find errors please let me
know.(there must be some :-) Also I want your info to update my file with.

I have put this on the web for your convince 24/7. I can not answer a lot of repeating questions. Like do you have .....
So if you do not find the name, listed on my page I do not have it.

I have in most cases included names of spouses & their Parents etc. so if the lines connect with what you are searching for, you will find a tie point.

If you have ideas of where to post this on the web please let me know where ( the URL & name so I can find it etc. ). Also let your fellow genealogist know.

Please bookmark this page when you find someone. "Don't reinvent the wheel later on."
