* Surnames of Alsace/Lorraine Home Page*

Updated September 6, 2000

I am researching many families from the Alsace/Lorraine area - some of whom were glassmakers and the connecting families.
The history of these people is very interesting and they played a big part in the development of the glassmaking trade.

Some of the names are Burgun, Schwerer (Schwoerer), Walter, Greiner, Jonas, Philippi, Winckler, Hild (Hilt/Hiltz/Held), Reppert, Kramer, Eberhard, Andres, Hiegel, Stenger, Feisthaver, Betz, Dillenschneider, Munch, Seiler, Fischer - to name just a few.

The towns that I'm researching are Mattstall, Goetzenbruck, Meisenthal, Soucht, Bettviller, Montbronn, Wingen, Bourscheid, St. Louis les Bitche, Biberkirche, Arzviller, Guntzviller, Hommert, Brouderdorff, Walscheid, Butten, Rosteig, Volksberg, Bining - again, to name a few.

If you know of any families from these towns or have any of the names noted above, let's compare notes.
