I am part of the Braeutigam family that came to Texas at the end of 1845. My family settled in Fredericksburg, Texas in 1846 and we have been there ever since.
Our family history was written in 1970 by a family member and I have gradually added to it since the late 1980's.
I just recently started a website on the Braeutigam's - you may find it at:http://www.braeutigamfamilyhistory.homestead.com
I have several pictures and some history on the site and will add more as I get more use to the website.
I have talked to others with the Braeutigam/Brautigam name in the United States and maybe we could make this the site of information exchange.
The basic goal is to exchange photos, etc between family members. Maybe we can eventually tie all the Braeutigam/Brautigam family members back to a common ancestor.
