  • ID: I1829
  • Name: Michael* SCHURTZ
  • Sex: M

  • Event: ReschNote
  • Note:
    Recent findings by Schurtz family researchers suggest that Michael was from Switzerland originally. From a Facebook entry:

    "... I only have a plausible theory that if you are descended from the Michael Shurts/Scherz/Shirts that came over in 1710 then you've come from a line of formerly Swiss mountain farmers that around 1650 were driven out of a small town, Aeschi, situated on a ridge above Lake Thun. The farmers were Protestant, perhaps Mennonite, and their rulers were Catholic. They moved to Speyer, in the Palatine, where there are records of them... I am building this theory on the research by... and now I'm not sure which Shirts did the research - will have to search for that book!
    "There are also, however Scherz's from Thuringen in eastern Germany, and all over the place, actually. Just south of the city of Freiburg where I live there is a miniscule town "Schertzingen". So... I don't think one can definitely answer more than those parts of Europe in which German is spoken or was formerly spoken - and that includes a lot of places including parts of Poland, Rumainia and so on!"
