On the 31st of August 2014 we visited the village and its Archives and Museum Schleitheimertal. Both are managed by Mr. Willi Bächtold with extreme zeal and competence. We learned a lot in these well organized institutions. We thank to Mr. Bächtold for his warm welcome and support.
At the Gemeindearchiv we have checked the first records of Huber's life: his birth record made by the midwife (Hebamme) Fida Pletscher and the baptism record 14 days after his birth. To know more about the Gemeindearchiv Schleitheim, please click here.
