Welcome to the Brunson One Name Study

About the Project

The BrunsonName Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Brunson name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Brunson name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Brunsons), by time period (18th Century Brunsons), or by topic (Brunson DNA, Brunson Occupations, Brunson Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Brunson One Name Study Goals

The objective of this study is to identify all Brunson cousins. The sort out the brickwalls and find solutions.

What You Can Do

  1. Work cooperatively together with other Brunson profile managers to create the best Brunson tree possible.
  2. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources to Brunson profiles.
  3. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies for Brunson profiles.
  4. Check for duplicates and request merges.
  5. Contact Sarah to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  6. If you are a male with the Brunson surname or a variant and haven't already, please consider testing your yDNA through the Brunson FamilyTreeDNA Project (link below) so that we can all have a better understanding of our heritage and possibly make new discoveries.

Is there a sticker for Brunson ancestors as opposed to the ONS Brunson sticker we use on our own profiles? Should we have Brunson stickers on our Brunson Profiles & if so, what do they look like to keep from tripping the 846 Died before template time frame error on my profiles.

I have a call out to my brother to see if he still has his copy of the Brunson Book my dad, Ray D. Brunson, wrote with his wife Gene in the 1990's. Along with that book is another about 4 centuries of Brunson's & their connections. I am also trying to talk him into a DNA test as he is the last of this line & has no biological offspring.

You can take Sybil Marie (Brunson) Giles off the brickwall list. She has both parents connected & she is no longer an orphan.

Great thank you! I have updated it with her father since we don't have him connected to the big tree. :)
