Main Objective and Major Activities of the BFO
The main objective of the BFO is
to "educate family members and others of the history and family traditions
within the genealogical lines of the membership." At the present
time the BFO is engaged in four major activities that support this
1) It is conducting genealogical research
on the ancestors of the Broughs of the British Isles and their related
families and genealogical lineages.
2) It is documenting the descendants of
Brough families of the British Isles who reside today throughout the world--especially
those living in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia
and New Zealand. Part of this effort is manifest through the sponsoring
and holding of International Brough Reunions
and the placing of online memorials and
physical monuments to particular Brough men and women who served their
country, faiths and families.
3) It is extracting and submitting the births,
christenings, marriages and deaths of all Broughs known to have resided
in the British Isles before 1900 for eventual entry into the computerized
database of Family Search of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City,
4) It is trying to find and maintain contact
with descendants of the Broughs of the British Isles who presently live
in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand
and elsewhere around the world.
