Michels from Netstal Switzerland
Posted by: Neil Maloney Date: February 07, 2001 at 13:53:08
  of 666

My Michel relatives come from the town of Netstal in Canton Glarus, Switzerland. Heinrich Michel (1822-1890)is my great great grandfather. He and his second wife, Elizabeth Hosli (1833-1887), had ten children.

Their eighth child, Heinrich, married Fridolina Rotzinger in Netstal in 1895 and then emigrated to US and settled in Pennsylvania. In the US, the family changed the spelling of the surname to Michell.

I am looking for others with Michel ancestors from Netstal or surrounding areas in Canton Glarus to exchange information on the family.
