Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Dennis L. Brokaw Sr. I am a retired Naval Officer after 29 years of service. I live in San Diego, California with my wife of 47 years. I am a self appointed Family Historian for the Brokaw-Bragaw-Bercaw and allied families since 1988. I maintain a large database on these families. I am willing to share information with anyone connected to these families. I have been a member of the FAG family for over Four years now. I hope to continue contributing memorials as I find new information. I am trying to consolidate as many Brokaw's and allied family memorials as possible into one location. Visit my Virtual Brokaw Cemetery.

Thank you for the information and it has been added so his mother is linked. Just for you information things would be much easy on members if you used the edit button on right corner of each memorial for updates such as these.

Thanks for your time
