Kieburtz family, genealogy, Switzerland, immigrants, Spanish American War
The origins of the Kieburtz family are found in Switzerland, Canton Aargau, in the town of Oberentfelden. According to the Familien-Namenbuch der Schweiz, a set of books that list family names who possessed rights in a Swiss community as of 1962, the Kieburtz family, historically spelled Kyburz, had citizenship rights prior to 1800 (that qualifies it as an old family) in the towns of Erlinsbach, Oberentfelden, Suhr, Unterkulm, and Niedererlinsbach. The name, and citizenship, has diffused therefrom to at least six other cantons and eleven towns in Switzerland, and the name has migrated to an unknown number of foreign countries and cities. The name is old, dating from before 1525: it is a farmer's name, and it is common in the towns mentioned above.
