Is there an easy way to tell where the head of each branch circuit is??

No not really. Usually nearest the panel feeding the circuit but no guarantees........

If you are that concerned you could install gfci breakers on all your branch circuits.

Thanks for your help. Not sure what each branch circuit is?

Each breaker in your main panel feeds a "branch circuit"

Re: Convert 2 plug outlet to 3 plug outlet

So...are you saying that if I install a GFIC receptacle on any outlet that is controlled by that specific breaker, the rest of the outlets on that line will be protected??

Sorry, I feel really stupid about this. Thanks so much for your input.

Is it very difficult to install a GFIC Breaker. I think I was intially thinking you said GFIC Outlet.

Can't blame anyone for wanting to hibernate on a day like today.
