Listed below are links to weblogs that reference I found you, Hans Landis! I found you!:



I've been doing a lot of family research beginning with the list that you gave me. It seems that every Landis in this country is the descendent of one of three brothers that immigrated here. So, pretty much, every Landis is related. Love you brother.


Wow, I am glad I googled "Hans Landis" as well....My grandmother was a LANDIS and her grandfather came from new Jersey and she told us we were "Pennsylvania Dutch". I did not know until much later what that meant. Now I know more about my ancestor thanks to you another Landis brother. Thank you very much for this information. I hope you are holding up well in NO.
God Bless

Hi! I was just doing some more research on Hans Landis (my relative as well!) and I found your blog. There aren't as many LanTis' compared to LaDis' in the states, and none in Switzerland, but we are still here! The spelling difference came about merely because many of the early immigrants were unschooled and/or didn't know how to translate their name from Swiss-German to English.

Anyway, just thought I'd say hi. I have no idea if you'll even check this since you wrote it nearly two years ago, but since I'm here I might as well let you know that I found you.
God Bless!

Hi, Glad to come across this site. I'm a direct descendant of the martyr, Hans Landis. He was my great( x10 ) grandfather. His first wife Barbara is where my lineage comes thru with their daughter Margreth Landis. A very interesting family story.

Hi, I am another relative of the Landis descendents. My great great grandfather was Christian Landi

My grandmother's grandmother was a Landis from Lancaster Co., PA. Actually, there is a town in Lancaster Co. called Landisville named after our ancestors.

I haven't been able to do much research on that yet.

I'm a direct descendant of the Hans. Thanks for showing me how he died. I haven't found much on them yet as I have only just found this line. Hans is my Great Grandfather 12 times over!

Good Luck everybody!

Hans Landis the martyr is my 13th great-grandfather. My relationship is through the Isaacs of Kentucky. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon). It would seem that a penchant for facing into the winds of persecution remains strong with his descendants. Thankfully we are not beheaded for our beliefs in America. God bless the memory and courage of grandpa Hans.

Perhaps I should add that my line comes through Verena Landis who married an Oswald Baumann. Their grandson Wendal Wyant Baumann emigrated to Pennsylvania with his wife Anna Herr before 1735. They had 14 children.

Hi, Hans Landis is my 10th great grandfather, and I also just recently discovered him in doing family research. My maternal grandfather was a Binkley from Lancaster County, PA, and one of his ancestors, Johannes Binggeli married Anna Barbara Landis who was a great great grandaughter of Hans Landis the martyr. Note: The historic Landis (Landos) homestead, built in 1488, is still standing in Hirzel, Switzerland.

I just found your blog; thank you so much for putting the information about Hans Landis up! I am a direct descendant of him (he's my x10 great-grandfather). It's fascinating that some of my ancestors were Mennonite/Pennsylvania Dutch!


I am also a realitive. I was looking on ancestry.com and so far I have gotten to Hans. So if anyone has any info I can use feel free to email me at mrspatterson20@gmail.com.
