The region that came to be known as Prussia was roughly divided between the territories of Brandenburg-Prussia, West Prussia and East Prussia. The Brauchitsch family emerged in Brandenburg-Prussia, which is essentially the birthplace of modern Germany.

Migration of the Brauchitsch family to the New World and Oceana
Since medieval times, the state of Prussia has played an important part in the history of Germany.

A spurt of migration followed, with some Prussians going elsewhere in Europe and many others crossing the ocean to North America. Most entered the United States through Philadelphia. Some remained there, while more moved on to the states of Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Others traveled to Canada and settled Ontario and the prairie provinces.
