Simply add your name to the list.


Current Goals

Step one of the process will be to index the Stammbuch of the community and to create well sourced profiles from them.

Each profile from the source documents shall belong to the following categories.

The main Stammbuch category for their surname. The category with ones parents. And when applicable, the category with ones offspring and the category with ones spouse's parents.

Categories shall be named as such:

For the main Stammbuch, create a category:

[[Category:FamilyName Stammbuch, Uri Canton, Name Name Study]]
where FamilyName is the surname of the Stammbuch. A short description like: This category is for the Regli v Gosch Stammbuch of Uri Canton should be included.

For each family group create a sub category:

[[Category: FamilyName Stammbuch xxx, Sources]]
where xxx is replaced with the family number. A short description like: This category is for the Regli v Gosch Stammbuch family group xxx should be included.

Main Stammbuch categories should be included in the category Name Name Study

Family group categories should be included in the main surname Stammbuch category.

Staumbuch Collection

This is a collection of all of the family names. Each individual born in the canton is recorded in these books. It contains marriage information, parent information and descendant information. If a date is not listed, I have been using the following estimating practice, 20 at first marrriage, then if no marriage date, 20 at first child. If the individual is listed in a family group, but lacking their birthdate, I have been adding one or two years to the birth year of the next older child. In Dec 2017 The entire Stammbuch collection has come online. The quality of the images are exceptional. It is free. Some go back to the early 1600's. Though the writing is an old version of Swiss/German a good percentage of the information is accessible to the English speaker. Uri Stammbuch Archive
