This all started with a simple question.  Are the Brutscheck's from the former area of Silesia (= Schlesien) related to the Brütsch's from Switzerland?

 Stefan could easily imagine that an "eck" was added to Brutsch upon arrival into the area which was once part of Germany, but is now part of Poland.  Stefan provided the town, Kunersdorf, Kreis of Oels, now with the name of Brzezia Laka.  This village is located some 15 KM [10 miles] east of Breslau, now named Wroclaw.  Thankfully, the Family History Library of the LDS Church had microfilm records of this town, # 1714805 and # 1714806.  Links to a transcription of both film for all entries of Brutscheck are provided below.

In brief, a Baltzer Brutscheck, b. 1631-1632, m.  1677, d. ~23 Sept 1714, was found, but no connection back to Switzerland could be made.  We will likely need a Brutscheck to join the Brütsch DNA project in order to make a final determination.
