This web site is a homage to the German immigrant Franz Xaver Imhof and Maria Regina Schmitt and his descendants that since 1860 constituted a great family in Brazil. They emigrated from Karlsdorf, part of the ancient region of Great-Duchy of Baden (presently Karlsdorf-Neuthard, State of Baden-Württemberg), Germany, in search of a better life. They settled in Colônia Itajahy (Brusque), State of Santa Catarina, in the city's fundation year.
