"Since 1191, Uolricus and Cuno de Gravinsried are the first mentioned of record, both by given and surname. The village of Grafenried, near Bern, is the first ancestral home of the family in Switzerland, and as early as the thirteenth century they were most numerous in that locality."--p. 18. Christopher (VI) deGraffenried was the first of the family to settle permanently in America. He married Barbara Tempest (née Needham) in 1714 at Charleston, South Carolina. They settled permanently in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Christopher died in 1742. Descendants lived in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas and elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
