CHAPEL "Notre Dame des Aides" of Oderen

CHAPEL NOTRE DAME DES AIDES OF ODEREN 1680-1894 to 2004 Chapel Notre Dame des Aides, also named « MARIA HILF » and situated in ODEREN was, in 1680 a very small oratory. It was built in the named place « Läger » - At this time, priest Basile STAUB native of ZUG asked permission to the bishop of Basel, to celebrate the mass in this new sanctuary built on the rock-side. His petition, written in 1683 and sent to Chrysosthome HANS who was an Official and Apostolic Protonotaire, reminds the beginning of this... [Lire la suite]

He was a cowherd and a cheese-maker she was a weaver

Family Arnold from Kruth in Haut Rhin (Alsace) was native from a little charming village of Lorraine: Gerbéviller, no far away from Lunéville. Our first known ancestor, Demanche Arnoulx, lived at the end of the reign of Henri IV, just at a time when Lorraine began a long period of time of misery and mourning. May be he is the son of Caguin Arnoulx. He had a son Claude born on 1623 in Gerbéviller. The entire present lineage considers that Claude Arnoulx is the founder of our family which lives for many...

lease Contracted by Claude Arnold

LEASE CONTRACTED by CLAUDE ARNOLD in 1648 with the ABBEY of MUNSTER for FESSENECK FARM We had already published this in a previous bulletin but it seems interesting to publish it again for our new cousins. In the 3rd bulletin of November 1981 we had published the translation of the lease contracted by Claude Arnold with the Abbey of Munster concerning the rent of Schweinsbach in 1651. We thought it was the first lease that Claude contracted with the Abbey which employed him, but we were wrong. Owing to... [Lire la suite]

I would like to tell the history of weaving in our Valley with the history of ARNOLD cousins and allied families gone to search for luck out of our Alsace. At first our American cousins, but also those who had gone around 1840 to REIMS, LILLE or NONANCOURT in Normandy. Gilles SIFFERLIN, in his book about KRUTH, wrote in 1909: « in 1863 the cotton-shortage arrived and damaged machine-made weaving. This crisis has been going on for two years and following many workers has emigrated. Some of them went to REIMS, others... [Lire la suite]

Benedict ARNOLD né 1741 Norwich + Londres 1801

Benedict ARNOLD, a strange figure. Is he a descendant of our family? Was already an ARNOLD family living in USA before the very important migration during 19th century?

His story was during Independence War against the British when the American fought with the help of the French General LA FAYETTE. After the invasion of Virginia, General Benedict ARNOLD was joined by the victor ... the Massachusetts hero... [Lire la suite]

ARNOULD from here or somewhere else

It seems that the Lorraine area is the one where our ARNOULX family came from. They became ARNOLD from 1640 in MUNSTER in Alsace. In Lorraine this name was very widespread. Their Patron Saint St ARNOULD (celebrated on July the 18th and ancestor of Charlemagne) was born in Lorraine. A great number of aristocratic or ennobled people, burghers or peasants are in Nancy records or Epinal records and were named ARNOULX.  An other branch may come from Germany with the name ARNOLD (Patron Saint celebrated on August the 14th –...

The story of our family Association

In 1964, I began to hear about genealogical researches…On that year I discovered at my parents’ home a genealogical board from my father Oscar Joseph ARNOLD to Clade ARNOLD born in 1623 in a little village of Lorraine near Lunéville. The author of this board was Abbé Eugène ARNOLD, chaplain into the old people’s home of Oderen where he retired and was searching for all the ARNOLD descendants of the Valley of SAINT AMARIN. Intrigued by this research, I put questions to my father in order to know more, but... [Lire la suite]
