I have recently finished the family tree for the Brooking family of Virginia. There are two distinct American lines and each line is comprised of approx. 4600 names. Some of the spellings are Brooking, Brookings and Brookins...amongst others.
There are three main Brooking families in the US, those being the Brooking Family of VA and its decendents, the Brookings Family of ME and its decendents and the Brookins Family of GA/NC and its decendents.
If anyone is interested, or you are looking for a family member you feel might be associated with the VA clan, please feel free to contact me a MLBrookins@aol.com
I am especially interested in here from those in AL, GA, VA, KY, TN, TX, OK, IL, IN, CA, AZ, NM, AR, LA, MS.
I look forward to hearing from you...Mike
