Welcome to the New Enderlin Family Exchange!
Our Enderlin family originated in the Breisgau region of southwest Germany. Our emigrant ancestors to America were Wilhelm Enderlin (1846-1914) and his wife, Maria Magdalena Gumbert (1851-1938). Both were born in the town of Bötzingen am Kaiserstuhl in what was then the Grand Duchy (Großherzogtum) of Baden. They left Baden in 1885, destined for San Francisco, leaving family, friends and most of their "badisch" culture behind.
In recent years, our family has tried to learn more about our ancient Germanic roots, as well as the culture and traditions that were left behind in old Baden. This website explores that culture, and pieces together what it means to be an Enderlin.
