Lehman Families in the parish of Signau in the Emmental of Canton Bern, Switzerland, 1550-1730

Signau is roughly 12 kilometers east of Vechigen and Worb and perhaps five kilometers southwest of Langnau. Signau is one of the parishes where ancestors of participants in the DNA project have been linked by conventional historical research to Kirchebuch records. For its contribution to our having reached this milestone in Lehman research, we are deeply indebted to Artur Lehmann for his excellent work done in Signau and other Emmental parish records and published in German in Schweizer Familien Lehmann aus den Amtsbezirk in Signau 1569 bis 1850, (Swiss Lehmann Families in the District of Signau 1569 until 1850).
