Hullinger Family
Wednesday, May 25, 2011
This blog is dedicated to all Hullinger / Hollinger / Holinger / Holiger's

Our family name originated in Canton Aargau, Switzerland. Some of us immigrated to the United States and other parts of the world.

We don't know for sure if we are all related. It is possible that the Hollinger / Hullinger name originated more then once in Europe. But many of us are closely related as shown by DNA testing.

Our Hullinger family originated in the small Village of Holvil (Boniswyl), Aargau, Switzerland, located near Zurich. We have visited this community, and found relatives. Since our ancestor left Switzerland in 1736, the connection is distant.

The community is very attractive, with a small castle located at the foot of a lake. A fast flowing stream forms a moat around the castle. The small community is affluent and friendly.

After leaving Switzerland, our people gradually moved west, settling first in Pennsylvania, then Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, and finally homesteading in western South Dakota, south of the Capital of Pierre in Vivian.

You should be able to download our geneology from this page if you need it. If not, I will be glad to send you the geneology by Email.  Craighullinger@gmail.com

The silhouette is of Ellis (Red) Hullinger, a real South Dakota cowboy, and represents our pioneer journey from Europe in 1735 west to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, and South Dakota.

The Dove stands for peace, a preferred alternative to war.
