The Schürch Family Association of North America


Schürch Biennial Reunions



Reunions have been held every other year since 1982. Many folks came out to CELEBRATE the TIES THAT BIND.

There is good coverage of the reunion in the November 2016 issue of the Schürch newsletter.

The next one is scheduled for the end of July 27-29, 2018 in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. This location is about a one hour drive north of Harrisburg.
There is a new format for this reunion. Keep watching here for details.


How many ways can one spell Schürch? Forty or more at last count. Add family surnames with ties to the Schürch family like Bergey, Brubacher, Clemmer, Detweiler, Erb, Good, Hunsberger, Martin, Shantz, and many more and the number of Schürchs skyrockets. In the 34 years since our association was established, Schürch historians have discovered numerous ties connecting the descendants of the first Swiss arrivals in 1727. Come and explore and celebrate your ties to Schürchs in Switzerland and across North America.
