  • Hi Debbie,

    I know personally Karl-Gottfried Brunotte. He is member of Letter-day-Saints - so I'm sure he will have done a lot of genealogic work. He is very famous. A few years ago I met him teaching about temples and their meaning worldwide and in a historical sense.

    Best regards

  • Thank you for your remarks, Andreas. I hope that your acquaintance Karl Gottfried Brunotte reads this forum and replies if we are from the same BRUNOTTE family.

    I have been searching through primary evidence for more than 40 years for the source of my BRUNOTTE family and was finally thrilled to find two separate solid sources in military records and ship rolls for the family's link to Wernigerode and another burial source pointing to Saxony-Anhalt.

    Hopefully this forum will help with other connections.


  • I am also looking to contact the following FOKO researcher. I believe we are looking at the same BRUNOTTE family.
