Swiss Compiled Genealogies

A good source for Swiss compiled genealogy references is a book written by Mario von Moos.  The Family History Library reference is 949.4 D23v.  This book is not on microfilm.  It is a bibliography of compiled genealogies of Swiss families giving the locality where the family lived.  A repository is given as to where the published genealogy is located.  Many Swiss emigrants came to Pennsylvania in the 18th century. This book contains over 9,000 entries of genealogies of Swiss families that have been compiled.

Julius Billeter produced records covering at least one thousand family names, with each surname covering well over a thousand individuals.  Most of his research is available at the Family History Library and can be found using the surname search in the Family History Library Catalog. His work is a good starting point, but does not include sources.  Many of the FHC films show completed LDS ordinances.
