The village of Brunow (which is a part of "Gemeinde Brunow" in north-east Germany) is the village where my ancestors lived and attended church for the last 70 years before they left for America.

On this page and the associated pages I have attempted to tell the story of "Gemeinde Brunow", a rural community in modern-day Germany.  I think you find it very interesting.

What is Gemeinde Brunow?

Gemeinde Brunow is a district made up three neighboring rural villages: Brunow, Klüß and Bauerkuhl.
