The document is attached as a scanned PDF. It contains fascinating images and narrative related to the earliest known Brauers (1355-1844). This includes photos of buildings and homes that are still standing today. It also contains a partial family tree back to Heinrich Braxator (Brauer) in the 1300's.

Acknowledgement from the creator of this document, Evelyn Brauer Stieg:

Upon going through my father's papers after his death in 1974, I discovered information written by the late Honorable Rudolf Brauer of Oldenburg, Germany. regarding Brauer Family Reunions held in Germany.

Through much correspondence with Rudolf and eventual attendance at a 1978 European Brauer Reunion held in Einbeck, Germany, home town of our oldest known Brauer forefathers, I was privileged to obtain a great deal of the information included in this book.

Another excellent source of information was Dr. Adalbert Brauer, archivist for the city of Frankfurt, Germany, whom I met at the i987 Brauer Family Reunion held in the beautiful, mountainous setting of Badgastein, Austria. Dr. Adalbert has a phenomenal mind with a vast wealth of knowledge. He expounded non-stop, for 2 hours without notes, giving exact dates and full names of people and places. He spoke in German, but every few sentences he repeated in English for the 14 American attendees...all this without barely taking a breath! It's a joy to receive a letter from him. because it is always filled with Brauer history.

Without these two dear relatives, it would have been impossible for me to compile this book.

I also appreciate the information and pictures of the Brauer Crests given to me by Charlotte Brauer of Helmstedt, Germany, current archivist for our Brauer history.

It is my hope that you will enjoy this book as much as I have enjoyed working on it.

Evelyn Brauer Stieg August 1989
