The focus of this paper is the Kunz Family, or the American descendants of Johannes Kunz and Rosina Katharina Klossner Kunz, our great-great-grandparents. Johannes was born on the 16th of September 1803 at Tschueppls in Zwischenflueh. in Diemtigen Canyon, Bern. Switzerland. Rosina was born on 9 December 1802 on the Blatten farm in Zwischenflueh. They were married in Diemtigen on the 9 February 1821. Johannes and one of his twin daughters were the first converts in the family to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). Two other children followed them into the Church and eventually the Mormon members of the family immigrated to America to be near the larger body of the Church in Utah while the remainder of the family stayed in Switzerland. This paper examines the members of the family and their descendants who became Mormons and went to the United States. ·
