Surnames information

The Répertoire des noms de famille suisses has become an essential on line standard reference. Representing the status as of the year 1962, it provides a comprehensive alphabetical listing of all the families holding citizenship in a Swiss community. Each entry contains information on the place of origin (i.e. community of citizenship), time of naturalisation as well as previous place or country of origin. This site offers free access to some 48'500 entries, as compiled in the third edition of the "Familiennamenbuch der Schweiz" (Schulthess Polygraphischer Verlag, Zurich 1989).

The list of surnames below is from my complete list "Familles alliées de par le monde", summarises the main surnames for which I have more information.
