I have become interested in a yDNA project and have a group of Bradners who have tested. It't a great new tool. Five have traced their ancestors back to ireland. The link below explains the simple and inexpensive process. It lists the various Bradner lines that I am aware of and hope you will check to see if your branch is included. Here is the linkhttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~bradner/dn...
I have also update my main page with many more Bradner family members with a number of added photos.
