Motsinger Family

I have traced the Motsinger family to early Wurttemberg, Germany during the 14th century. Over the years, my lineage traveled to Switzerland and were present in this area beginning in 1501. I have also located records in France during these early years that pertained to family members. My lineage remained rural and farmed for their survival. By the late 17th century, they were living in a small village named Marthalen. My lineage traveled to Pennsylvania during 1735 and settled all throughout the United States.
