Re: BAUKNECHT - Germany - 1600's
Diane:I only have info back to 1600 in our direct line
with no siblings.We do not have a Michael in our line.
Where was Elizabeth born?I have a very interesting book
entitled: Property, Production, and Family in Neckarhausen, 1700-1870" by David Warren Sabean (25.00) (Cambridge Studies in Social and Cultural Anthropology) (THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT!) It has about 60 references to Bauknechts 1700-1870.Also related names.
There is no reference to the name Rauschenberger which leads me to think that your Bauknechts did not come from the Nackarhausen area where the research took place.Others have told me of Bauknechts in other countries before
1600 so I can't say it is definitely Germanic.I would like to know where you got your info on Elisabeth B.Please give me her birthplace.Where was she married?
