Durst Family History

If you are a descendant of Joachim and Regina Elmer Durst from Glarus Canton, Switzerland, there is a 44 page book on line entitled List of All Members of the Honorable Family of Joachim Durst. Nikolaus Durst, a descendant wrote the book in 1895. It is not a history. The book lists the names, dates of births and deaths as well as marriages of Jaochim's descendants. Many familes that went to Wisconsin, Ohio, Arkansas and South America sent the birth dates back to Glarus even though they were living in Glarus. The book is written in the old German gothic print but is easy to read. I have some copied pages from the Glarus Archives on my family line that I am comparing to the book's info.
