Stricklers of the World
Earliest Family Records
Records of the Strickler family date to the mid 13th century. The following pages contain a variety of the oldest known records of the Strickler family. This is not an exhaustive list and each year new records are slowly being uncovered. I have chosen to include records here up to 1600. The reason for this is that the main parish register for Richterswil dating before 1600 was destroyed by fire so records for Richterswil families are limited. This list should help to define the early Strickler families for which no other record now exists.
