Engemann Family Genealogy & Research

Our branch of the Engemann Family is from Ostwestfalen, Germany (the eastern part of North-Rhine Westphalia), mostly from the villages Borgentreich-Bühne and Hohenwepel (near Warburg). Our records go back to the 1700s, some to the 1500s. It is said that Engemann ancestors came from Tyrol, Austria in the 1640s, but there are no documents to proof this.
