Subject: [SWITZERLAND-L] ROHRER - old family name in Eiken, Aargau
Date: Thu, 28 Jan 1999 22:27:14


Ellen,
Though I have no details of the names you have listed, the Rohrer name is
an old name in Eiken the heimat of our family.However, the
Familiennamenbuch also shows that is an old name in many heimats covering
most cantons in Switzerland. If you have any further links in the Eiken
area let me know. I have two old books listing family names from Eiken if I
can be of further help.

Yours faithfully,
Peter Berger

This family of ROHRERs left Switzerland for Alsace about 1695. It is
believed that they lived in Bern, probably, meaning. the Canton of Bern.
They were Mennonites, possibly Amish. Does anyone have information as to the
exact location of this
family in Switzerland?
