Origins and History


New to Family History? Check out our Getting Started page. Check out House Of Names to investigate the origins of the Brahan surname or get a copy of the Brahan family Crest (a great gift idea!).


Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Brahan ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!

Birth, Death and Marriage Records for the Brahan Family History

Birth, Death and Marriage records are often the best method of making the links to the Brahan Genealogy that will form part of your family tree. Although records vary from country to country, they are normally the most formal record of a person's relations.

A marriage certificate may also list the names of the respective fathers of the bride and groom which may then help you to find them earlier in life on a census record enabling you to fill out more detail in the Brahan family tree.
