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.
