Is anyone familiar with this family or surname? Brevits/Brevitz/BrewitzThe family I am trying to trace is: Einar Kasper Brewitz born about 1873 in Kristiania married Alma Karlson from Hurum, Buskerud.This is the family when they came to the US. The first settled in Chicago and then moved to Michigan. Einar came first and then his wife and children followed:154914 1905 177 30 18.05.1905 19.05.1905 Einar Kasper Brewitz g mek.arb. m 32165028 1906 198 28 1 02.05.1906 04.05.1906 Alma Brevitz g (mek.arb.) k 32165029 1906 198 29 02.05.1906 04.05.1906 Olaf Brevitz ug b m 4165030 1906 198 30 02.05.1906 04.05.1906 Georg Brevitz ug b m 3165031 1906 198 31 02.05.1906 04.05.1906 Erling Brevitz ug b m 1 1900 Census VestfoldStrømmen: 1588 1 Einar Brevits m b Hf g Smed for Fabrikken 1873 Kristiania N S1589 Alma Brevits k b Hm g huslig Gjerning 1875 Hurum Bu N S1590 Olaf Brevits m b S 17071899 T NI did find an entry for 1875 in Hurum for Alma to verify: Barn Alma K 25.5 1875 9975 Far Inderst, Arbeidsmd Carl August Christiansen Husebye 1841 1865 9976 Mor Hust.

In Pommerania (Pommern) in North Eastern Germany a very large number of village names en on -itz, most families in Scandinavia with such names originally came from that area.

I want to THANK both of you very much for your help. I did find a birth record for Einar with Johan Brevitz and Gunnild Marie Olsen as parents b. Oslo. I also found the marriage record for Malene who is Einar's aunt and listed in both of these census records that was linked for me to check. This all fits together and this is definitely the family in Norway and they came from Germany. I am so greatful that you both helped me with this family. Thank you!

Malene Brewitz was my mothers grandmother. Malene's father Johann was born in Rostock, Germany 1809. He married Jørgine in Stavanger, Norway about 1840. Johann and Jørgine had 4 children: Ole Johan born 1848, Elias born 1850, Jørgine Fredrikke born 1858 and Malene born 1853. Neither Elias or Jørgine Fredrikke had any children. Ole Johan and his wife Gunhild Marie did also have atleast 3 children: Olaf born 1870,Einar Kasper, and Johan Petter born 1879. Malene and her husbond Olaf Christian did only get one child, my grandfather Bjarne,born 1891. If you want more information, please contakt me. beahell@online.no
