This is a mail from germany - sorry for my bad english... I've just read your message in the GenForum from March, 06 2002. You are right: a lot of the engemanns are from westphalia. I am one of these. I (Klaus Engemann) was born in Warburg/ Westfalen (1963). My father was born in Menne - between Warburg and Ossendorf in 1939. They move later to Scherfede, between Menne and Warburg. His wife Magdalene - my mother - was also born in Warburg in 1941. My fathers mother - Helene Engemann was born in Ossendorf. I think my grandfather, also Josef, was born in Ossendorf, but I'm not shure. My grandfathers brother was Peter Engemann, born on the 15.10.1881 in Ossendorf, his wife was Josefa Engemann, born as Josefa Prott on the 25.June 1881 in Scherfede.
If you are interest in some informations about these bunch of Engemanns send me an e-mail. I will ask my father for the names, the birth- and deathdates for my grandparents and also for my great-grandparents. Perhaps my aunt will remember my great-great-grandparents. She and my father told me, that the Engemanns are living since generations in the area around Warburg/ Menne/ Ossendorf. Perhaps you are interested in some communion-pictures I' ve found: they are from 1842 for Heinrich Engemann for his holy communion in "Oßsendorf" an from 1841 for Maria Theresia Berendes, born on the 13. April 1827.
