I wanted to know about my family so i asked my grandma for papers about our family. I also was looking on the internet for information about the Brooks family. That is my great grandmothers maden name. I found this book by William Cutter. It had information about the Brooks family and it had all my relatives names that my grandma gave me! I actually found some of my family. Also the book says they do not know when Henry Brooks was born or where he was from. I have that information. He was born in 1591 in England or Scotland my grandma says. And from there he went to Woburn Mass. So if anyone ever reads this and has more info on my family history or think we could be related write a review and i will check every so often.Thanks!!
