The "Genealogies" collection
Our collection has several genealogies that have been entrusted on deposit, including that of the Chastonnay family. A digital copy of this family tree is available at http://gw.geneanet.org/hdechastonay
Similarly, the Archives holds the family trees of families from the High Valais, like the Ruppen "Hamjini", Eyer "Simini", Walden of Naters, Salzmann "Josephi" of Naters, Schmid "im Stock", Schmid "im Dorf" and Nellen of Baltschieder and Naters.
For information on family names and coats-of-arms, the Armorial valaisan is an indispensable source: the three armorials can be found online at https://doc.rero.ch/search?ln=fr&p=armorial+du+Valais&action_search=
