Just found this site and got curious as to how diverse geographically my family might be. I know my grandfather's name was Harold Brautigam with his father, I believe, to be William Brautigam. He's the one who built the farm my family's homestead currently resides right now, and the name on the tiles state 'W. Brautigam, 18??' I'll be going through the other posts to see if anything sticks out to me about other family members my grandfater spoke about before he died.
