The ancestral home of the Zurlinden and Jäger families

Jean Zurlinden and Anna Maria Jäger were married in Masevaux, Haut Rhin, France on June 2, 1704. 

We have traced the Zurlinden family tree back to Joannes Jacobus Zurlinden in the mid-1650's in Masevaux and the Jäger family tree back to Nicolaus Jäger born in 1550 in Masevaux.
