Huber/Gut/Willi/Neuer from Windlach/Stadel?

Surnames: Huber Gut Willi Neuer Neukomm Meier
Hello,

I'm looking for information on the following families from the Windlach/Stadel area:

My great-grandparents are Albert Huber (b: Feb 5, 1883, d: June 6, 1932) and Emma (Gut) Huber (b: Aug 6, 1882, d: April 25, 1965. I believe they were married in Windlach Feb 7, 1907. They immigrated in 1907.

Albert has two brothers, Heinrich (Henry) and Ernest and a sister Emilie, who’s married name may be Nauer. Heinrich immigrated in 1908, but we have no information on Ernest or Emilie.

Albert’s parents are Rudolf Huber (b: est 1857) and Elisabeth Willi (b: Apr 26, 1861 d: Mar 1, 1881). They were married Mar 1, 1881.

Elisbeth Willi’s parents are Hans Conrad Willi (b: Nov 8, 1827 d: Apr 9, 1872 both in Windlach) and Elisabeth Neukomm (b: Nov 8, 1892 in Rafz).

Emma Gut’s parents are Johanes Gut and Regula Meier.

Any help would be appreciated and if anyone has suggestions on how to access Swiss records in the Windlach area, I would love the advice!

Hello,

It sounds like you have a great start on your family history. Here are my suggestions:

If you live near a Family History Center (run by the LDS or Mormons) they have all the microfilms for all the Zürich church records. The Family History Library will lend out films to the Family History Centers for a small fee (for mailing etc). These films for Zürich can go as far back as the late 1500s.

When looking at the church books, make sure to check out the "Haushaltungsrodel". These are family books kept by the parish priest. They will give you full birthdates of the parents, children, who they married, death dates, etc. This will help you male sure you're making the right generational connections. Be sure to verify the information with the parish registers of christenings, marriages, and burials.
When you get your family back into the 1700s and 1600s, the town census records (called Bevölkerungsverzeichnisse - they begin in 1634 and continue through the 1700s for most areas) will be invaluable. These however were filmed by year, so each film has a whole bunch of towns. These census records are also necessary for carrying your search back into this time period.

Thank you! I looked into your suggestions and we do have a Family History Center close, so I will be visiting soon!

I appreciate the feedback as we had gotten a bit stuck once we hit Switzerland.

Thanks again for you suggestions!

Hello, I have been researching my Huber and related lines from Stäfa and surrounding municipalities. Recently, I borrowed to microfilms with census records as you describe in your post. One reel had some census records from 1657....these were quite basic, at least for the towns I am researching, often saying something like "Hans Huber and 5 children". The 1695 census and 1698 census had very detailed information.

Have you worked with these much? Do you have a feel for which census years overall seem to have more info, or is it varied throughout the time period and through different towns? Thanks in advance if you have any info about this.
