About Solgot-Miller Tree
Salgat-From the Middle Ages until 1792, the South-Western portion of present day Switzerland was an 
independent ecclesiastical site known as L'Eviechi de Bale-The Bishopric of Basel.The Bishop of 
Basel was both the Spiritual and Civil Ruler. Politically the Bishophric was allied with The Holy 
Roman Empire. The Bishop always held the title, "Prince of The Holy Roman Empire. Through the 
centuries the rural population of The Bishopric tended to be French Speaking; Those in the Urban 
Centers (And the Upper Class were most often German Speaking). Although the had much in common with 
their French and German neighbors the people of Bishopric possessed their own cultural identity. In 
1792 The French Emperor Napolean occupied The Bishopric of Basel. The territory was annexed to 
France and became part of France's Haut-Rhin Department. After the defeat of Napolean in 1815, The 
Congress of Vienna gave the area to Switzerland's Canton Berne. It remained Canto Berne (And was 
referred to as Canton Bernese) until the formation of Canton Jura in 1979. (Canton Jura comprises 
much of the Territory of the former Bishophric of Basel.)   
  Moveler, the ancestral home of The Salgat Family, is a small village in Canton Jura's Delemont 
District. it is just a few miles from the French border. The people of Moveleir are French Speaking 
and Roman Catholic-realities that have remained constant for generations. In the mid-1800's four 
Salgat Salgat families left Moveleir for the United States (They came over on the ship Manchester, 
which landed in New York.) and settled in Macomb County and St. Clair County. Many of the children 
of these four families would marry descendants of the Old French families of Detroit.The Salgat 
part of this geneology is based on records of Moveleir;s St-Germain Catholic Church and the various 
civil records that exist for this village. These records are available on microfilm through The 
familyHistory Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
