Church Records[edit | edit source]

The church in Schönholzerswilen was established in 1714. It officially belonged to the parish of Bussnang, where they were recorded in the Zürich censuses, but because Neukirch an der Thur was much closer, most children were baptized there. For earlier records, look in both Bussnang and Neukirch an der Thur.
