Swiss Immigration To Wisconsin

A research project to identify Swiss immigrants to Wisconsin from 1826-1900

An intensive and comprehensive study of Swiss immigration to Wisconsin during the 19th century has been in progress since 1980. The goal is to produce brief biographical and genealogical studies of all persons of Swiss birth who came to reside in Wisconsin prior to 1900. The focus is on major sources of emigration, the journey to America, migration routes, and the settlement process.
