My Brooks family are direct descendants of Jacob Brooks. My sister and I have just started researching our family. We have purchased BKF, has great info. Please keep me informed on when update is complete would like to have copy. Also, any info I can offer just let me know. As I said I am new at this so I don't know if I have anything to add, other than I do have a letter from my great grandfather William Johns Brooks son of William Bluford Brooks who was the son of Jacob Warren Brooks, goes on back to Jacob Brooks, Sr. and William Brooks of Va in 1700. Sorry I can't make reunion, sounds like fun. Maybe next year.
