As a young person, growing up in Colorado
I believed that my family of Bribach was very small indeed. The
only Bribachs that I knew were my parents and brothers, my uncle,
his wife and children, and my very Great-Uncle Eugene. It was
hard to think that we were the only people named Bribach in the
I wondered where we came from.
I became interested in genealogy and I discovered that my great-great-uncle
was not the only Bribach to come to America. There were other
relatives in St. Louis, and even more families in Chicago.
As the Internet grows and
more information is available, I find that there are many other
Bribachs in the world. There are Bribachs in Germany, France,
South America. We may not all be related, but perhaps we are.
My hope is to connect up these scattered Bribachs and see if we
have anything in common, making information about "Bribach"
available to anyone else who is searching.
