I guess it depends on whether we have the same name. Our name was spelled at various times in history as Buntzel. Actually the phonetic pronunciation of the name is as yours is spelled. I travel to Germany all of the time and your name is spelled how the Germans pronounce it.

My branch originally is supposed to come from Bunzlau (now Boleslawiec), a West Silesian town in between Breslau (now Wroclav) and the Eastern German border. This area is now Poland.

Let me know if any of this sounds familiar.

Regards,

David Bunzel
My family immigrated from some villages further North Margonin and Pilsen (now Pila)and I have records that document this. I am not sure if they came to this area from Bunzlau.

My family immigrated to Wisconsin in the 1870s. I live in the San Jose, CA area.

I live in Bellville, Texas. My Grandfather immegrated to Texas in about 1840 on the bark Republik which is now in a museum in Essen. His name was Frederich (Fritz) and he came with a wife and a sister. He was a furniture maker and later a blacksmith because of the need of wagons. As I understand it he came from the same area of Prussia which is now Poland. There are several Buntzels in Texas and a lot in Germany. Dr. Rudolph Buntzel is a very prolific writer, Paul Buntzel is a Genecist, Marie Buntzel is in Israel, Christian Buntzel is a student in Germany studying forestry. Just type in Buntzel in your search engine in the internet and you will find many. Best regards from Texas.

I live in Bellville, Texas. My greatgrandfather Frederich immegrated in about 1840. He settled in Millheim (Peters) Texas. Had a furniture manufacturing facility from 1850 to 1860. When Texas was being settled and there was a large need for wagons, he started making them. He migrated from an area which is now Poland. He had a sister who came with him named Willamina. They came over on the Bark, Republik which is now on display in the museum in Essen. Look at the internet under Frederich Buntzel and you will get some information. Also Rudolph and Christian Buntzel is Germany is probably some relations.
Best regards.

Gloria,

My branch was supposed to have come from a town in Germany called Buntzlau. After WW 2 the Polish received this land, German speaking people were expelled, and Polish people settled and the town was name Boleslaweic (Near Breslau; now called Wroclaw). I don't recognize your line. Spandau is a suburb of Berlin. Supposedly all Bunzel's originally came from Buntzlau. My branch immigrated in 1872 from Posen (now Poznan) area. Some small villages (Margonin). Wisconsin is a common thread. There is the possibility your branch came to WI to join up with distant relatives from my branch who had settled there.

If your branch is Jewish, it is a little different story. There are Jewish and Catholic Bunzels. Not sure if there is a common relation. My branch was Catholic back to the early 1800s for sure.

David

John Bunzel's father Herman moved from Spandau to Berlin and became involved in politics. After threats, his wife convinced him to move to Great Britain. Catholic too. Their family migration from England was in 1856. Your family was already here by that time? Where?

My Uncle (grandson of John) wrote a biological story about John when he (uncle) was in high school or college. If you have any interest in a copy, let me know.
