Welcome to the Bracy genealogy. Family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and down each lineage. To follow a line back in time (ancestors), click on the underlined portion of "(son of ...)" or "(dau. of ...)" beneath the name of the person you want to trace back. To follow a line forward in time (descendants), click on the name of the person whose offspring you want to see. A plus sign (+) following a name means that that person had one or more children, but that family group has not been added to this web page. A link to documentation and notes, when available, is given below each family.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to museum@mdihistory.org or mailed to "Mount Desert Island Genealogy; Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, ME 04660". And, of course, please report all errors.

The earliest Bracy recorded in the census for Mount Desert Island was a John Bracy in the town of Mount Desert in 1830. However, in the 1810 census of Mount Desert, there was a William Bray, and in 1820, a John Bray. Research is needed to determine if Bray and Bracy are variant spellings made by the census taker for the same surname.
