O'Hair Brann Book
The Michael O'Hair
by Virginia Carolyn (Dean) Brann
Webmaster with any
A few years ago, I was able to obtain a copy of a genealogy book prepared by Mrs. C. Gerald Brann in May of 1957. The book has long since been out of print.
It seemed a shame to let this 380-page book fall into oblivion. I know how thrilled I was to get the one I have.
So I scanned it and here it is, on the Internet.
I have tried to be true to the original. Misspellings are left as is. Poor grammar is retained.
Any changes (she had several errors in my grandfather's family EVERETT RYAN O'HAIR) are highlighted in yellow. Errors are shown with strikeout. New information is shown highlighted in light blue. Footnotes document the origin of the change.
This can be a bit messy, but it retains the original, yet shows the updated information. Note that, according to the original text, my mother was married at age 9.
In the GENEALOGY section, for readability, I have changed the names of the persons shown so they appear in bold type. Virginia, of course, had no bold key on her typewriter, but I think she would approve.
If you find any changes that need to be made, e-mail me with an explanation of what needs to be changed and why. Send me something to include in the change footnote so that others and I will have confidence in the authoritative nature of the change. A scan of an original document would be excellent.
If you have photos of some of the oldsters, I would greatly appreciate a scanned copy of it. Make the resolution at least 600 dpi x 600 dpi. When I receive them, I will place them in appropriate areas of the book and note its origin.
