Swiss Americans are Americans of Swiss descent. Swiss emigration to America predates the formation of the United States, notably in connection with the persecution of Anabaptism during the Swiss Reformation and the formation of the Amish community. In the 19th century, there was substantial immigration of Swiss farmers, who preferred rural settlements in the Midwest. Swiss immigration diminished after 1930, although limited immigration continues

No reliable figures exist for Swiss return migration, but it was numerically substantial. For instance, nearly 7,000 of the more than 8,200 Swiss of military service age who had gone to the United States returned to Switzerland between 1926 and 1930. The first Swiss to arrive in North America in large numbers were the Swiss Mennonites, a group that derived from the Anabaptist communities of the Radical Reformation of the 1520s. They rejected infant baptism, thus declaring the whole of ecclesiastical Christendom as heathen.
This book does just that. Most ethnic groups in American are listed and have a historical synopsis. Great for any history enthusiast as well.

The Swiss Mennonites" and "New Glarus. The Making of a Swiss American Town". He uses Swiss emigration as a testing group for his theories on migration. For him, emigration must be considered in close conjunction with the immigration to and the internal migration within the home country. 2005,.
