The Brown Family Tree, like many families, has been a collection of informal notes found in family photo albums and Bibles. Some research was done by interested family members with newspaper clippings of obits and library lookups. But, it was the Internet that really got things rolling.
The surnames of interest are Brown, Howe, Smith, Lambdin, and many more yet to be listed. The geography ranges from the UK, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, the American Colonies, and across the United States. The time span starts around 1066 to the present. Much of the research is focused within the United States, as that is where most of our recorded family history exists.
