I am in possesstion of an old sea chest with the name Karl Waag carved in it and dated in the mid 1850's. We also have many Karls and Fredrich's in our family tree. My great-grand father and great-grandmother's names were Fredrick and Elizabeth( Brunck) Waag, residing in the Buffalo,NY area at the turn of the century. Please contact me with any info you might have. Thanks

Hi Dave,
I hope your email address is still working, and you receive this message.
This is most likely the origin of the Waag / Brunck families who came to America and lived in the Lancaster / Buffalo area (Erie Co., NY). The info on David Waag corresponds with a ship manifest of 1852 and the 1860-1880 censuses for Lancaster Erie NY
They were from the town of Linx in Baden (near Offenburg), today part of the community of Rheinau.
The church records of Linx begin in 1606, where I could find our earliest mentioned ancestor, Martten Wag, b. ca. 1564 .
