Subject: Hundreds of Swiss surnames researched by Julius Billeter
Date: Thu, 27 Feb 1997 00:05:21 -0700


While I was using the resources of the LDS Family History Library, I
found some very interesting information compiled by Julius Billeter (the
reference desk helper said he hand copied lots of genealogy notes for
Swiss families). Here's how I found it:

Inside a search program called IGI (International Genealogical Index),
there is a subsection - Family History Library Catalog. After entering
this section, I could search on town, county, country, etc.

By searching on Switzerland, an 84 item list appeared. To find out more
information, one must enter each section and query each reference
individually. For example, I found the following information under the
section #32, Genealogy, with 22 references to works referenced in that
section. There appear to be 3 different classifications spoken of at
the FHL: Book, microfilm, and microfiche. It appears that the
references below are microfilm. If it says FILM AREA then a 7 digit
number will be included. I found the following reference to, what
appears to be, the life-long genealogical work of Herr Billeter copied
onto 23 different 16mm microfilm reels.

Though each FHC will not have all (or none) of the microfilm reels at
their respective site, the local FHCs can request (for a nominal fee,
$3.50??[I've never done it]) the film to be loaned from the main Family
History Library in Salt Lake City.

**WARNING** - the films referenced below are the actual handwritten
notes (at least they were of my SCHMUTZ family) from Julius Billeter -
they are NOT the original documents.

It might be more useful to check any surname searches in the LDS
Ancestral File, first, to see if the handwritten notes had been
computerized. Then you can just get a text descendancy chart or a
GEDCOM pedigree.
