The Schwaigern Years / Boger Family Genealogy, http://www.tradenet.net/bboger/genealogy2.html
Schwaigern, in Wurttemburg is a small village near the Neckar River in the southcentral part of what is now Germany. Schwaigern is located near the city of Heilbronn. The village formed in the 12th and 13th centuries with the formation of die Herren von Neipperg (the Men of Neipperg), a royal family which exists today. The town charter was issued in 1372 when Kaiser Karl IV decreed a weekly marketplace to Schwaigern, in Prague on April 1st of that year. The main market place in Schwaigern today dates to 1486. The town is surrounded by rolling hills, farms, vineyards, and a small stream runs through the edge of town. The center of town is dominated by one hill only slightly higher than the others. This hill is dominated by the church and adjoining kloster, and later a "schloss" or palace.
Schwaigern and the surrounding countryside were torn by constant wars, and the records from the 1600's reflect the horrors of those wars. The entries in the Evangelical church records from the 30 years war, when 222 people died in 1625, and 691 people died in 1635 are examples of the struggle to survive the times of religious and political upheaval. The death toll quite often included complete families. Barely 20 years passed from the end of the Thirty Years War befor Schwaigern was again engulfed in war, this time by the Hollandische Krieg, the Dutch War. This war lasted for 6 years. Ten years later the Pfalzische Erbfolgekrieg (Pfalz War of Succession or the Grand Alliance or the War of the League of Augsburg) began. This war was considered worse than the others and lasted from 1688-1697. The area was occupied by the French in 1688 during Louis XIV's Rhenish Invasion. Heidelberg was burned to the ground. The Spanishe Erbfolgekrieg (Spanish War of Succession) followed from 1701-1714. This was followed by the Polnische Krieg (the Polish War of Succession) from 1733-1738 (just after my ancestors decided to skeddadle), the Osterreichische Erbfolgekrieg (Austrian War of Succession) 1741-1748, and the Siebenjahrieg Krieg (the Seven Years War) from 1756-1763. The Heimatbuch Schwaigern states that the only times the wars subsided was when the countryside was exhausted, not just with crops, but with people to raise them. There were simply too few men left to farm, much less fight. The peoples of the area emigrated to Russian, Poland, and America. The emigration was prompted by religious intolerance, war, and taxes. The emigration was general to all of the Germanic states, not just Wurttemberg.
