Does anyone have any information on the von Brook family in Germany?

+6 votes
I have lots of information on them. after they arrived in Brooklyn, NY, but at a loss finding anything about them in Oxstedt, Cuxhaven, Germany.

Also, the same applies to my paternal grandmother, Anna Marie Leutemann from Altenbruch, Cuxhaven, Germany.

Greetings Frederick,

Are you aware there is a German Roots project on WikiTree?  They have some sources listed there.

They also have a Lower Saxony sub-project that may have some other ideas if you were to contact the coordinator.  

Happy researching!

I contacted a Lutheran church in Altenbruch, Cuxhaven who turned my request over to a local genealogist in the area. He provided some very useful information on my paternal grandmother's family (Leutemann) before the entire family emigrated to Brooklyn around early 1900's.

Is the email you provided a local church?  Do they speak English?

Thanks for your help.
The email is for the local parish right next to Altenbruch which is responsible for Oxstedt.

I don't know whether they would have somebody speaking English, although most people will have some fundamental English knowledge.
