Looking for Family Breul from Postdam

Hallo !

Hello everyone, as you can see, I don't speak German yet, but I hope someone who speak english will help me.

I am Wellington Gennison, and I am from Brazil.

My great grandmother Martha Breul, was born in Postdam May 27 1879, daughter of Emil Otto Breul (or Otto Emil Breul), and Luisi (unknown surname).

I also Know that they arrived in Brazil with the ship Donan on May 27 1889.

Any information you can help with, or even any direction to start my research will be very welcome.

I antecipate my thanks.

it might be the most efficient way to contact first the town-archive of Potsdam (not Postdam). This archive is in possession of the civil registration of Potsdam 1812-1873. See

Kind regards

Breul in Brandenburg

Hello Wellington,

Breul is a pretty rare surname in the province of Brandenburg, and so the following might be of interest to you:

Friedrich BREUL, labourer in Mechow, 25 years old, single, son of Christoph BREUL, deceased labourer in Liebenthal, Kreis Oberhavel, and his deceased wife,
Caroline KRÄGNOW, 23 1/2 years old, single, daughter of unmarried Sophie KRÄGNOW in Wittstock (Dosse) who consented to this marriage in Herzsprung,
were married in Mechow on November 29, 1863.
