Reutlingen is the capital of the county of Reutlingen, which covers a wide area including parts of the Schwaebische Alb. Reutlingen has always been an industrial city and a center for the textile industry. It has attracted a lot of people from the small towns around, which either moved there or at least went to work there.
There are several separate pages for villages which has been independent and now are part of the city of Reutligen as Betzingen, Bronnweiler, Goenningen, Ohmenhausen and Reicheneck.
On the official website there is a special chapter called “Stadtarchiv” which covers the history of Reutlingen.
Historical Society / Geschichtsverein Reutlingen
The historical Society in Reutlingen was founded in 1899. On their website they provide helpful information about Reutlingen today and in the past.
Unfortunately I still have some gaps in Reutlingen. So more research has to be done to make final statements.
