The Bachmann Family

Large cities around the world serve as targets for those individuals born in small towns with limited options for an improved lifestyle. For the ancestors of Helene Erika Paula Bachmann, Frankfurt am Main was the goal. They came from north and south, mostly from Hessen, but also from Rheinland, Pfalz, Alsace, and Aargau in Switzerland. The Bachmann line emigrated from Switzerland, but it is not yet known exactly where they originated. These people were government officials, pastors and teachers, landholders, master craftsmen, and farmers. Despite many wars and pestilence, they have descendants alive today.
