Early Younts left Neiderbronn near Strasbourg in Alsace, France in the early 18th century. My family left there in 1731 and came to Pennsylvania. Others stayed on in Alsace and later moved to Russia near Odessa. They went to there as Catherine the Great offered them free land and religious safety (the were Protestants) about 1800. Later the political situation changed and life became miserable. There is a JUNDT Family book about this I bought last fall from Amazon.
