I was surprised to discover that my maternal line goes back to my 4th great-grandmother who was from Berne, Switzerland. She came to Athens County, Ohio, USA in 1819 with her husband and three daughters. In 1822 one of those daughters married a man from an old New Englander family, which was most unusual for the time. So I am really interested in learning more about my Swiss Miss roots and working with others who share this interest. [edit]
