Brounce Family Tree and Address List

The Brounce Family Tree documents the family of James Gordon Brounce and Alice Malpass Brounce. It was originally started by Janet Frankhouser Brounce in 1972, when the current annual Brounce Family Reunion tradition began. As of 2017, the current edition of the Brounce Family Tree is maintained by 2nd and 3rd generation descendants Gwen J. Brounce and Andrew P. Widdowson.

Here are some lovely words from Janet Brounce, about this transition:

This is the last Brounce Family Tree I will prepare, after 45 years of recording events for our tree, consisting of James Gordon Brounce and Alice Malpass Brounce and their descendants. For about 15 years before that, our branch was recorded as a part of the Family Tree of William Daniel Brounce and Martha Gordon Brounce, and of the Family Tree of Thomas Malpass and Eliza Lane Malpass.

Starting with this 45th Brounce Reunion in 2017, maintaining the tree and addresses, phones, etc. will be done by Gwen Brounce and Andrew Widdowson. They are excited about this and have been planning for it since Andrew’s presentation at the 2016 reunion.

It has been my pleasure and passion to seek and maintain family records over the years; to know from whence we came, and to preserve that knowledge for future generations. Thank you for allowing me to do that!!
