Brough Family Organization

Looking for your Brough ancestors?

    If you're looking for information on your Brough ancestry, or if you're not sure you're related to the Broughs of the Brough Family Organization, we recommend you do the following:

1.)    First, see if you can find your Brough ancestors in the BFO Genealogical Databases or in the world's largest free online genealogical database at Family Search.  The Family Search website provides you with access to the extensive genealogical records of the Family History Library (FHL) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

2.)    Second, contact the BFO via email and briefly explain your research problem.  BFO family genealogists usually investigate most research questions related to Brough ancestry within 30 days.  However, BFO family genealogists usually volunteer only two hours of their time to each such inquiry.  If BFO family genealogists are not able to freely resolve your research question(s) within this time period--or if you feel it would require more than two hours of research to resolve your question(s)--you can contact family genealogists (such as Brough Family Genealogists), a professional genealogist, or a genealogical research firm to conduct additional research on your behalf.
