Brackenheim, Wuerttemberg, Germany an ancestral home

Here’s a look at the village my Laemmlen ancestors came from.  Leonhard Heinrich Laemmlen, my 2nd great-grandfather was born here in 1836.  He was a master tinner.  On 27 January 1862 he married Maria Magdalene Justine Schelle from Biberach in Biberach.  Four years later, he died at age 31 in Grossgartach.  His wife and their 3 children, Johann Heinrich Wilhelm, Marie Katharine Louise and Herman Albert remained in Grossgartach, where our relatives live to this day.800px-Brackenheim_um_1640_De_Merian_Sueviae_058Brackenheim in 1640
