Thanks for checking on the Brunyers for me. I will probably look at those sites for other German lines, too. Unfortunately, while the entries you found were indeed my people, they appear to be based on the LDS Ancestral File, which is the information I already have. I contacted the main submitter, who said that Hermann was actually not from the city of Hannover (I don't know how that error crept in; there is more than one submitter), but just from the kingdom. I even know that there is an area in Hannover where the name is very concentrated, but despite eliminating many villages through printed indexes and family books, there are still zillions left that are not on microfilm or in print. I guess I'm just grasping at straws, hoping that someone else is working with this family and can point me in the right direction. I rather like looking at old records, but there's got to be a way to narrow things down a bit. Martin BRUNIGES, anyone? Johann Martin?
