From the Introduction:
??This book is a first attempt to establish a framework for answers to the most fundamental questions about the Linder surname. Where did it originate? What does it mean? Where and how did it spread? How many Linders are there today? Where do they live?
I hope the incomplete answers and vague clues given here will both inspire and help direct further research. Most Linder genealogists and family historians are properly concerned with the limbs, branches and twigs of their individual family trees. This book attempts to establish an overall Linder framework and context for their efforts. This is a first description of the Linder forest, large, mysterious, difficult of access and shrouded in the mists of history, but offering great rewards for its explorers.??

This book will provide a wonderful resource for information for Linders seeking the meat to go on the bones of their Linder Family Tree. It will be of particular benefit to the genealogy buff who already has learned the basic structure of their family tree, but long to give it some historical perspective or to bring alive some of the real Linders who lived before our time. It feels like you??re reading about your own 15th and 16th century ancestors, how they lived, their marriage customs, their occupations, how frequently the plagues of Europe claimed their children before they reached adulthood.
One of the most exciting portions of the book for me was reading the details of how the Linders of Saanen participated in the purchase of the land from the local feudal lord, the Count of Gruyeres. That vignette brings to life the actual conversion of the European fiefdoms of Switzerland from the feudal system to one of small private land ownership.
Of interest to those descendants of Simon Linder b. 1680 are several articles on the history of the Linders in the Saanen area of Switzerland, including articles on associated early surnames, the effect of the black death plague on everyday life between 1600 and 1850, on emigration to the Pfalz (Palatine) and North America. An extensive collection of local church records are also cited.
The year by year listing of all of the immigrants listed in the various reference books is a real boon to anyone doing genealogical research. I??ve been working on my family genealogy for 14 years and this book is unique in its attention to detail. Harold says he??s been gathering material for this book for over 25 years, but says that he??s only captured the highlights of Linder history in this book. The time and devotion he has spent in analyzing the data and making sense out of it where there were only individual fragments before, is the beauty of this work. Although the author makes no claim to have uncovered all of the information on one surname, I??ve rarely seen as scrupulous attention to detail. It must have been a labor of love. the way it has been presented allows the reader a breadth of information that will allow him easily to delve deeper for more. And the writer has provided accurate references as well as the library he located them in in order to assist the serious genealogist in his work. Travel to Switzerland and Salt Lake City may be cost prohibitive to some seeking more information, but most libraries will mail a few pages from a book for a nominal cost if you know the exact location of your reference.
This book spans a time of 737 years of recorded history.
The Linder Sourcebook includes over 300 references to Linders in Europe before 1600, the present distribution of Linders throughout the world before 1600, information on 13 Linder lines and their origins, a chronological list of all Linder immigrant to America (over 1200), illustrations of 19 Linder coats of arms and a list of almost 200 Linder place names.
The Linder Sourcebook will be a standard reference for anyone interested in Linders for many years. It will probably change forever the way you think about he Linder surname. It includes translations of several German documents that give the English-only reader a solid introduction to early Linders in Europe.
