Attempts to trace the Procuniar\ier - Bragunier family's migratory origins and destinations from Peter Brockunier's ancestors reveal more confusion than substance. Attempts to reconstruct the complex web of interrelationships have enabled us to gain some perception of what may have been our family progenitor. Most records uncovered here are at the most incomplete and my conclusions were carefully hedged with somewhat qualifying statements. Although both the family reader and this researcher seek firm facts, both must note the hypothetical nature of many of the findings. What I am saying here is that the reader needs a degree of patience and imaginative empathy until the complex picture of the family emerges in the narrative. What records that have been found would support the claim that Maryland and Pennsylvania were the original, Procunier Brockunier ancestral home.  (partial excerpts from The Bragunier Family 1969 by Brittain Bragunier Robinson)

The Procunier Family and their descendants biographies and numerous biographical details are constantly growing through current family correspondence and diligent research. For a full description of the sources, see A Few-Sources.
