My Englert ancestors came from Hundsfeld, Bavaria, just south of Hammelburg, Bavaria, Germany.
In 1985, Eugen Schmitt wrote a history of Hundsfeld, just south of Hammelburg, Bavaria. 302 pages.
My Breun [Brown] family came from that area, also Englert, Kötzner, Brust, Heim, Fella.
Here are the family names shown in the Hundsfeld book:
Weippert, Rösser, Kress, Winter, Schmitt, Englert, Kötzner, Alte, Rüth, Bock, Bartenstein, Wirthheim, Weber, Zeigler, Götz, Nöth, Brust, Stienmüller, Heuler, Janson, Meder, Heilmann, Lutz, Mehrlich, Neubau, Gräf, Fella, Reuss, Drunsel, Wirtheim, Heger, Dehmer, Kuchenbrod, Adamo, Fischer, Spahn, Kretzer, Häfel, Weidner, Röhm, Weidling, Heinickel, Stromenger
These are shown as household heads in 1871.
The village history goes back to 744/47 and has a wealth of information. The book is in German, which I do not read. I commend Eugen Schmitt, b. 13 June 1912 for his contribution to the history of this region of Bavaria.
Anyone have information on Georg Breun, Elizabeth Heim, Jakob Kotzner, Anna Maria Brust, Johannes Michael Englert, Elizabeth Übel, Julius Fella, Catherine Häfner, Georg Breun, George Brown?
Our ancestors emigrated from this area to Rochester, NY in the 1840s and 1850s.
My aunt Louise Brown visited Fella relatives during WWII who were held prisoners of war in New Jersey.
