I am searching for the organizational structures
of the following:

1. Maxbruder
2. Federfetchers
3. Luxbruder
4. Company of St. Michael

Can't aseem to find documents that deal much about these groups.
The most references that I could find where from Edgerton Castle's
book. I would apperciate all help, thanks.

Unfortunately on the wrong system to access my bibliography, but....

Most of the works are in German.  If you can read German, then try Henner
Huele's 500 Hundred Years of Fencing masters in Germany, Gustav Hergsel's
work, Karl Wassmanndorff's work which includes three works, one of which
is a list of various prizes played by Federfecter and Marxbruder and Hans
Peter Hils' work on Liechtenaurs. Most of this is on the Marxbruder and
Federfectern, there is some on the Luxbruder, nothing as far as I remember
on the companies of John or Matthew.

The critical point is being able to make some sort of headway in German,
enough to tell which parts are worth more detailed translation.
