Hottviller is a village in Moselle (Lorraine), France.

This page lists names found in the Hottviller microfilm records. My search of these microfilm reels is neither complete nor thorough. I searched only for the names that appear in the Catholic Church records of Welland County, Ontario, and in particular for my SCHNEIDER ancestors. I did find the name SCHNEIDER in the Hottviller records, but not my SCHNEIDER ancestors. I discovered that the SCHIEL (or SCHIHL) family of Welland County, although not ancestors of mine, originated in Hottviller. After searching these records, I found my SCHNEIDER ancestors in the village of Nousseviller-lès-Bitche, which about 4 km from Hottviller.

I have preserved my findings on this page for future reference, and to assist other researchers. I have only recorded names of interest to me, such as SCHNEIDER. I have not recorded every instance of these surnames.

If some of the dates on this page look strange, such as "08-Pluv-y.6," it is because they are from the French Republican Calendar.
