The Brooks Family Historical Library is a family genealogical association founded in 1980 by Karen D. Rocher of Ft. Scott, Kansas and Jeffrey P. Brooks of Lexington, Missouri. In 1991, its name was changed to the Brooks Historical Library.

Periodical for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Brooks (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from England, Ireland, Russia, and Scotland. Some allied families came from Czechoslovakia and elsewhere. Some were adopted into the Brooks family, and some were African American slaves who took on the Brooks surname. In the 1600s, some ancestors immigrated to Antigua, Bermuda, Barbados, Jamaica, and St. Christopher (West Indies), and to Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. In the 1700s, some settled in Quebec (Canada), and in Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Tennessee. During the 1800s, some moved to Nova Scotia and Ontario (Canada), Australia, the Azores, Mexico, South Africa, and to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Later descendants also lived in British Columbia (Canada), New Zealand, and in Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, South Dakota, Washington, and elsewhere.

Includes lists of the Brooks Historical Library holdings, extracts from those works, and indexes to those works are created by Brooks Historical Library membership. Some indexes are of all Brook and their variant surnames (incomplete indexing) and others index all surnames in the works.
