Religion: BRETHREN Mailing List


Topic: A mailing list for anyone who has an interest in discussing and sharing information regarding the genealogy, history and culture related to Brethren roots (i.e., ancestors and families that are or were members of the church group founded in 1708 near Schwarzenau, Germany). The movement came to America in two main groups, one in 1719 and the other in 1729. Church names associated with this group include Tunker, Dunkard, German Baptist, the Brethren Church, Church of the Brethren, Dunkard Brethren, Grace Brethren, and Old German Baptist Brethren. This list does not include information and discussion of the United Brethren or Brethren in Christ groups.
