The Schürch Family Association of North America is a non-profit organization that offers assistance to individuals that are researching their heritage. The SFANA (Schürch Family Association of North America) would appreciate any donations that will assist our Historical Committee and Association with research within North America and Europe to help hire trained genealogists to conduct research in their regions and/or areas of expertise and access.

A donation is not mandatory and we certainly will not hesitate to offer you our assistance.

If you would like to make a donation please mail a cheque to either the U.S. Treasurer, Jack Sherick 49 Lovel Court, Apt. C, Nutley, NJ 07110 or the Canadian Treasurer, Laurine Mills 1750 Killaly St. E., Port Colborne, ON L3K 5V3.

The Association has a newsletter that is printed twice yearly. Contact Jack or Laurine if you would like a subscription. There is a pdf order form which can be printed off from the Newsletter menu.
