About the Bredimus Family

The Bredimus family name can be traced back to Roman times and is one of the oldest family names in Western European history.

If you are a member of the Bredimus family, or related by blood or marriage, we invite you to browse this archive of the American Bredimus family. The scope of the articles is primarily devoted to the ancestors and offspring of one couple: Robert L. Bredimus (1909-1980) and Elsie J. McDonald (1917-1992). They were my parents and this site is lovingly dedicated to them.
