My Amish Genealogy

Either you find genealogy research fascinating... or you do not. I'm somewhere in the middle but delved into it for my latest Good Men Project essay Trauma and Trump: The Rise of Amish Authoritarianism.

Among my findings: Johannes Schwartz, my ancestor who immigrated to America with his wife Anna Ramseyer (from Mancenans) was married in Belfort, France. He was born in Bern, Switzerland but his father Hans Schwartz is listed as being born in Dampierre, France circa 1766 and died at Saint-Hippolyte. When I have more patience I will try to find out more but that is not today!
