HALTER

HALTER Family History
The first with the surname HALTER in Schirrhein, Alsace, France area "were one of two brothers. Abraham and Jacob HALTER. They left the village of Tafer in the Canton of Fribourg southwest of the Canton of Bern, for land in Alsace that had been stripped of its population during the Thirty Years War. They immigrated to Schirrhein, Alsace between 1650 and 1660. In 1689 Abraham HALTER died in Schirrhein. Among his descendants, was Edouard HALTER of Schirrhein, Alsace's most famous poet, historian, and literary critic. A lesser known but nonetheless interesting descendant was Romain HALTER, the first mayor of Schirrhein, who served through the chaotic period of 1789-1792, during the French Revolution. Descendants of Abraham and Jacob are now scattered throughout the area and are found predominately in towns and villages around Schirrhein, particularly Schirrhoffen, Bischwiller, and Hagenau."

Robert Behra notes which appeared at one time on his A to Z Alsace Communities (link now defunct)(with permission given to copy on 11/29/1999) the following information: "For Catholic records of residents of Schirrhein you need to consult the parish registers of Haguenau. Those for the churches of St. Nicolas and St. Georges were apparently filmed together, and microfilm No. 0742514 has all the baptisms for the period 1730-1767. There are also registers for the church of Marienthal and the Hôpital civil in Haguenau.... Then there are the registers of the Chapitre-rural for Haut-Haguenau and Bas-Haguenau. These would be the last resort, I think, but should be checked if the others don't yield anything."

RESOURCES FOR FAMILY CONNECTIONS




The Falter-Scharf Family From About 1585

By
Vincent Falter


Anundsen Publishing Company
Decorah, Iowa


Vince Falter gives the following information:

"After 15+ years of work and multiple research (and great vacation) trips to Luxembourg, various parts of Germany, and to Alsace and Lorraine, France, The Falter-Scharf Family From About 1585 has been delivered to me.

The Falter-Scharf family history is printed in two high-quality, hardback, 8 x 12 inch volumes printed on 60 lb. acid-free paper.

They are organized as follows:
  • Vol. 1 Falter and Falter ancestors.
    This book contains chapters on the following primary families, who were early settlers in Stark County, Seneca County, and Delphos-Landeck part of Allen County, Ohio area:
    • Falter (both the Ohio and Chicago lines from Nack, Germany)
    • Ardner (from Mittelbexbach, Germany)
    • Bonifas (from Nospelt, Luxembourg)
    • Gengler (from Nospelt, Luxembourg)
    • Koerner (from Nack, Germany
    • Steinmetz (from Schirrhein and Schirrhoffen, Bas Rhin, Alsace)

  • Vol. 2 Scharf and Scharf ancestors.
    This book contains chapters on the following primary families, also well-known in the Delphos-Landeck area:
    • Scharf (from Nack, Germany)
    • Hummer (from Niederkorn, Luxembourg)
    • Kihm (from Walsheim, Rheinheim, and Gersheim, Germany)
    • Groff (from Alsace, France)
    • Müller/Mueller/Miller (from Rheinheim and Gersheim, Germany)
    • Descendants (to mid 2001)

The titles of the above chapters indicate the names of our ancestral families that are known to have immigrated to the United States in the period 1831-1846. Of course, there are literally hundreds of other families included in the books. They are our ancestors who preceded the immigrant families and they are researched to the point where the records in Europe no longer exist. They go back 400+ years to about 1585. They have been researched and are written up in great detail in some cases, depending on the information available. Other families listed are those of persons who married into the families listed in the chapter headings here in the United States over the last 150 years.

I knew that this was going to be a big job, but never realized how BIG until I finished it. All told, it contains about 1,150 pages and has a 64-page index of the 11,000+ persons recorded in the book. It also contains the detailed and extensive pedigrees of both the Falter and Scharf families back to their earliest known ancestors in the 1500s.

The two volumes contain over 200 photographs, illustrations, maps, tables, diagrams, charts, plus many, many family stories. Most of the source material came from wills, and probate, parish, vital, land, military, and census records in the various countries. The original Latin, French, and German in which those records were written have been translated into English.

These books are more than a recitation of who our great-grandparents were, who their parents were, and who the children of countless generations were. The books also contain the relevant essential history of the families in the context of the histories of Luxembourg, and Hessen and the Bavarian Pfalz of today's Germany, as well as Lorraine and Alsace, France. They also contain the histories of the many towns and villages in which our ancestors lived from the 1500s until the 1930s, plus information on their occupations and how they lived. This information has been translated from the original German and French.

The books are available for shipment immediately. The cost for the two volumes is:

$ 102.50 for both books
$ 12.25 shipping, packing, and handling
$ 114.75 total

Most of our family and researchers are primarily interested in the families contained in only one of the volumes and want to add only that volume to their library. In that case the cost for one volume (your choice, Falter or Scharf) is only:

$ 51.25 cost of one book
$ 8.80 shipping, packing, and handling
$ 59.05 total



If you want to order a book,
  1. let me know which volume, Falter or Scharf (or both) that you want.
  2. Send me the mailing address to which you want the Volume(s) shipped.
  3. Send a check for $ 59.05 for either volume or $ 114.75 for both volumes to:
