HALTER Family History from the website:
The first with the surname HALTER in Schirrhein, Alsace, France area "were one of two brothers. Abraham and Jacob HALTER. They left the village of Tafer in the Canton of Fribourg southwest of the Canton of Bern, Switzerland for land in Alsace that had been stripped of its population during the Thirty Years War. They immigrated to Schirrhein, Alsace between 1650 and 1660. In 1689 Abraham HALTER died in Schirrhein. Among his descendants, was Edouard HALTER of Schirrhein, Alsace's most famous poet, historian, and literary critic. A lesser known but nonetheless interesting descendant was Romain HALTER, the first mayor of Schirrhein, who served through the chaotic period of 1789-1792, during the French Revolution. Descendants of Abraham and Jacob are now scattered throughout the area and are found predominately in towns and villages around Schirrhein, particularly Schirrhoffen, Bischwiller, and Hagenau."

If you have anything you would like me to add to the page (photos, stories, etc.), a suggestion to improve something, see a correction that needs to be made, or just want to say hello, I would love to hear from you.
In addition, I have accumulated a great deal of images and information on our collateral lines (extended family outside of direct ancestors and their immediate families). Due to space limitations, much of that is not able to be included in this website. If you are related, think you might be, or just want to know more, I am happy to help.
