Re: Willing to share Buschlen information?

In Reply to: Willing to share Buschlen information? by Selma of 19

I am probably descended from Hans Bruegger and Elsbeth
Bueschlen of Frutigen, Canton Bern, Switzerland. He
was born in 1583, she in 1585, and they were married
in 1606. Note that "Bueschlen" and "Buschlen" are the
same names; the original spelling has the letter "u"
with an umlaut (two dots) above it.

I have not followed the Bueschlen line further back
in time, but here are sources of information (the
last is a microfilm available through your local
LDS Family History Center) which appear to deal to
some extent with the Bueschlen family in Switzerland:

"The history of the Rosti family in Switzerland and
America, 1555-1991 : allied lines: Wafler, Buschlen,
& Grossen", by Marilyn Roesti

"Stammbaum Weibel Niklaus Büschlen, Adelboden :
Büschlen - Dänzer - Maurer, mit Linien Lauber und
Schranz und den vielen Abzweigungen", by Gilgian
Maurer

"Stammbaum des Geschlechtes Büschlen, Adelboden
und Frutigen" (Genealogy of the Büschlen family of
Adelboden and Frutigen, Switzerland. Descendants
of Bartlomes Büschlen of Rinderwald) FHL INTL Film
1183692 Item 8

Unfortunately, the parish records of Frutigen have
not yet been microfilmed by the Latter Day Saints,
so one has to use the services of a town genealogist
there to do research on one's family (I had to do
this) unless you can read German and can make the
trip there yourself. I have the name and address
of the individual who did the research for me, if
anyone is interested; she did three hours worth of
research and charged twenty-five dollars an hour.

Good luck.
