Early Swiss Genealogical Resources

Despite some inaccuracies and incomplete documentation, the genealogies collected by Julius Billeter (1869-1957) include more that 1200 families and are among the best sources of genealogical information on families of Swiss descent.

According to the Billeter collection, the Streiff family has origins in Diesbach GL, Linthal GL and Schwanden GL, Switzerland.

Online Billeter collection resources can be found in German or English for more details about Streiff and other surnames of Swiss origin.

    I fully agree with Mr. Waleed Hanafi regarding his views on en bloc development. It is the modern form of clearing squatters off their land to build new towns and infrastructures. The difference between the old and new way of acquiring land is that in the former, the squatter trades off his znic or attap roof hut with no running water or toilet for a HDB flat with modern amenities and in the latter, the displaced minority owner has to downgrade from a condo to a HDB flat and in a less desirable neighbourhood.The concept of en bloc in its present form is good for realtors, developers, conveyancing lawyers, speculators, builders but definitely not for the minority owners. The number of rip-off owners far outnumbered the lucky ones, where the overly optimistic developers overpaid for the site.En bloc game is truly a zero-sum game where when the developer wins, the owners must surely loses and vice versa. I hope the government thinks harder to make the en bloc game a positive sum game, where everyone wins. Come on http://tropaadet.dk/salinacruz76434081815
