Part 909bs – Brunhammer Schwimmer – The Search Continues

31 August 2017

Good Day,

As a part of my search to discover whether or not Marie Anne Schwimmer (bc 1816) and Marie Anne Schwimmer (bc 1820) are related it is necessary for me to create a worksheet ancestry chart in order to verify all possible connections.

It is known that there are a number of Family Trees available in Internetland that exist without any source documentation or citation details. That is where I like to start. I use that information and then I search for the corroborating documents.

The following Brunhammer Schwimmer Family Tree is the beginning of that work.


For me, the best type of software I use for this type of exercise is GenoPro 2016. There is a freedom with this software that permits me to create a worksheet and to use it like an electronic "white board".

First of all, if you cannot view a good enlargement of my Brunhammer Schwimmer Research Work Sheet please feel free to drop me a note at jsmith58@gmail.com and I will send you a jpg file.

And here are a few notes and a key regarding understanding my work on the actual worksheet.

1. I have identified the 2 Marie Anne Schwimmers; each one married to GGG-Granduncle Laurent Brunhammer and Sébastien Brunhammer. See the blue box and the red arrows.

2. The red lines, not including the red arrows, are the coordinating links that I have found to date and they represent the Brunhammer connections.

3. The blue-bounded yellow-filled boxes and circles represent direct blood-line ancestors. The boxes represent Males and the Circles represent Females.

4. The "~" represents an approximate year.

5. The "<" represents the possibility of a date before the one given.

6. The ">" represents the possibility of a date after the one given.

7. The column of "Greats" on the left-hand side of the worksheet represents the level of the ancestor on the Brunhammer Family Tree and the relationship to Andy. In other words, "6-Greats" refers to Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandfather Conradi Bruhamer or 6-times Great-Grandfather Conradi Bruhamer.

Just my observations.

And now onto another piece of evidence.

The genealogy research and search for ancestors and descendants continue.

Family connections can be seen on the family tree, the Brunhammer Doherty Family Tree. If you would like access to the tree you will need an invitation from me. You can sign up with Ancestry, and from what I understand, without having to take a membership subscription. Feel free to contact me at jsmith58@gmail.com if you would like to receive an invite to the Brunhammer Doherty Family Tree.

Part 908bs – Brunhammer Schwimmer – 1851 Marriage Registration Sébastien Bruhammer and Marie Anne Schwimmer

24 August 2017

Good Day,

The work in finding out whether Marie Anne Schwimmer is related to Marie Anne Schwimmer continues. Today I am working on the 1851 Marriage Registration of GGG-Granduncle Sébastien Brunhammer and Marie Schwimmer.

GGG-Granduncle Sébastien was 4-times Great-Grandfather Sébastien’s youngest son. He and GGGG-Grandmother Marguerite (née Ruess) had 3 sons; GGG-Grandfather Joseph, GGG-Granduncle Laurent and GGG-Granduncle Sébastien, that I am currently aware of. GGGG-Grandparents Sébastien and Marguerite (née Ruess) Brunhammer also had 4 daughters: GGG-Grandaunts Agnes, Therresse, Magdeline, and Marguerite. (I’ll be researching their families and descendants later.

Also, I should make a note here. It is concerning the surname Brunhammer. I have seen and come across various and sundry documents that have the name spelled in different ways. This just means, that by all accounts, all are correct. The surnames are Bruhamer, Bruhammer, Brunhammer, and Brunhamer. As you cross the generations you may see and know the surname in any of these spelling formats. None of them are incorrect. And any of them may apply to various branches of the family tree. In general, I will be referring to the surname as Brunhammer primarily as this is the format that I was first introduced to the name.

Now the youngest brother GGG-Granduncle Sébastien Brunhammer, who appears to be named after his father GGGG-Grandfather Sébastien did marry a wife whose name was also Marie Anne Schwimmer. This was the same as his older brother GGG-Granduncle Laurent. His wife was also Marie Anne Schwimmer.

And my quest is to find out whether the two Marie Anne Schwimmers were or were not related.

In Part 907bs – Brunhammer Schwimmer – 1842 Marriage Registration Laurent Bruhammer and Marie Anne Schwimmer we discovered that this Marie Anne Schwimmer was the daughter of Antoine Schwimmer and his late wife Marie Ann Schlienger. This Marie Anne Schwimmer was born in 1816.

And here is the first of two differences. The Marie Anne Schwimmer who married younger brother Sébastien Bruhammer was born in 1820.  Also her parents were Michel Schwimmer and Marie Anne Münch.


I have now found the 1851 Marriage Registration for GGG-Granduncle Sébastien Bruhammer and his wife Marie Anne Schwimmer. Here is my work from the Archives départementales du Haut-Rhin.

Part 907bs – Brunhammer Schwimmer – 1842 Marriage Registration Laurent Bruhammer and Marie Anne Schwimmer

21 August 2017

Good Day,

In my effort to find out whether Marie Anne Schwimmer is related to Marie Anne Schwimmer I am working through the discovery, transcription, and translation of possibly relevant documents.

The following is the 31 December 1842 Civil Marriage Registration of 3-times Great-Granduncle Laurent Bruhammer and his wife Marie Anne Schwimmer which is based, I believe, on the required practices began on the 25th of September 1842.

1. Sunday, 25th September 1842, 11:00 am
2. Sunday, 2nd October 1842, 11:00 am
3. Wednesday, 5th October 1842, 8:00 am
4. Saturday, 31st October 1842, 5:00 pm


And based on my limited understanding I would gander to guess that 3-times Great-Granduncle Laurent Brunhammer and his new wife were married on 5 October 1842. The prior 2 dates may have been the posting of the bans and intention of marriage. The 31st of December may have been the closing of the books/registers for 1842.


My attempted transcription –

No. 5Bruhammer LaurentetSchwimmer M. Anne.

Part 906bs – Brunhammer Schwimmer – Which GGG-Grandaunt Marie Anne (née Schwimmer) Brunhammer is Which?

14 August 2017

Good Day,

And what do you do when two brothers, two GGG-Granduncles marry wives who both have the same name?

That’s right, GGG-Granduncle Laurent Brunhammer (born 2 Aug 1813, Hochstatt) and his younger brother Sébastien Brunhammer (born 8 May 1820, Hochstatt) both married wives named Marie Anne Schwimmer. And both couples decided to have children around the same time.

This is where it becomes confusing, and this is where I must carefully sift through the Birth Registrations to make sure who is who and who belongs to whom.


And it becomes more confusing when their elder brother GGG-Grandfather Joseph Brunhammer has three (3) wives; GGG-Grandmother Catherine (née Ganzer), and step-GGG-Grandmother Marie Anne (née Gugenberger), and step-GGG-Grandmother Sophie (née Berger). And so, there are children also arriving because of two of these marriages.

All I can imagine is the Registrar’s face and comments when a Brunhammer walks through the door of his office to register a new Brunhammer.

Anyway it took me sometime today to determine who is who, and who belongs to who.

First, all three, GGG-Grandfather Joseph and his two brothers GGG-Granduncle Laurent and GGG-Granduncle Sébastien were sons of GGGG-Grandfather Sébastien and Marguerite (née Ruess) Brunhammer. To date and with the proper documentation I have figured out that GGG-Granduncle Laurent Brunhammer (born 1813) married the Marie Anne Schwimmer (born about 1816) whose parents where Antoine Schwimmer (born about 1781) and Marie Anne Schlienger (died about 1829). GGG-Granduncle Sébastien (born 1820) married the other Marie Anne Schwimmer (born about 1820) whose parents were Michel Schwimmer (born about 1787) and Marie Anne Münch (born about 1787).

And yes, GGGG-Grandparents Sébastien and Marguerite (née Ruess) Brunhammer also had 4 daughters, that to date I have been able to find documentation regarding their births. To top it all the three brothers may have had at least 22 offspring. (And AH, you thought there were a great amount of Dohertys…)

Here is the roll call –

GGGG-Grandfather Sébastien Brunhammer (also spelled Bruhammer, Bruhamer and Brunhamer)
GGGG-Grandmother Marguerite Ruess

Joseph Brunhammer and Catherine Ganzer – GGG-Grandparents
      > Carl Brunhammer – GG-Granduncle
      > Catherine Brunhammer – GG-Grandaunt
      > Jean Brunhammer – GG-Granduncle
      > Jacques (Jacob) Brunhammer – GG-Grandfather
      > Joseph Alexandre Brunhammer – GG-Granduncle
      > Henri Laurent Brunhammer – GG-Granduncle
      > Jean Charles Brunhammer – GG-Granduncle

Joseph Brunhammer and Marie Ann Gugenberger – GGG-Grandfather and 2nd Wife

Joseph Brunhammer and Sophie Berger – GGG-Grandfather and 3rd Wife
      > Albert Eugène Brunhammer – ½ GG-Granduncle
      > Joseph Albert Brunhammer – ½ GG-Granduncle
      > Eugène Brunhammer – ½ GG-Granduncle

Agnes Brunhammer – GGG-Grandaunt

Laurent Brunhammer and Marie Anne Schwimmer – GGG-Granduncle and GGG-Grandaunt
     > Sixte Laurent Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Madelaine Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Thérèse Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Marie Anne Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Josephine Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Catherine Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed

Therresse Brunhammer – GGG-Grandaunt

Magdeline Brunhammer – GGG-Grandaunt

Sébastien Brunhammer and Marie Anne Schwimmer – GGG-Granduncle and GGG-Grandaunt
     > Joseph Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed
     > Aloïse Brunhammer – 1st Cousin 4-times removed

Marguerite Brunhammer – GGG-Grandaunt

Part 905bd – Brunhammer Doherty – Finally - 1st of April 1944

07 August 2017

Good Afternoon,

We’ve been looking for this documentation for some time now; at least for more than 10 years.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, April 1, 1944, on Page 7, “107 Licenses Issued”



“Total of 107 marriage licenses were issued by the county clerk’s office during March, records revealed Friday. This compares with 112 last month and 133 for March of 1943.”

And guess what arrived in the mail today?

Marriage License No. 21469, dated March 31st, 1944.

Also included were the Application For Marriage License, dated 31 March 1944 and the Marriage Certificate, recorded 5th April 1944.

Guess what?


The Marriage Certificate for 1st of April 1944 for Myrtle Frances Doherty and Eugene John Brunhammer. The ceremony, in accordance with the laws of the State of New Mexico, was performed at the Post Chapel, Kirkland Field, New Mexico by the Chaplain William J. Bennett. The Witnesses were Mrs. Davis Harris and Sgt. Harold L. Harris.

Part 904bd – Brunhammer Doherty – Who was GG-Grandaunt Sarah E. Pierce?

Good Day,

Sometimes it is possible to follow a wrong lead while researching an ancestry line.

I have been researching Great-Great-Grandaunt Sarah E. Pierce. She was born 14 July 1841 in Maryland. One Sarah E. Pierce I discovered married Samuel Mimm 27 May 1869 in Chester, Pennsylvania. GG-Grandaunt Sarah, the Sarah Mimm died in 1909 in Avondale, Chester, Pennsylvania.

1869 - The Village Record

Her parents were GGG-Grandparents William H. and Sarah P. (née Fuller) Pierce. GG-Grandaunt Sarah E. was one of their 11 children.

Of course, I can follow their line and descendants. The issue is there are a couple of other Sarah E. Pierces in my research who may or may not be one and the same.



The line I am referring to may or may not be correct. Hopefully, someone may be able to provide some verifiable proof.
