Münchenstein 2

Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. It had been a federation, since 1848, of relatively autonomous cantons, some of which have a history of confederacy that goes back more than 700 years, arguably putting them among the world's oldest surviving republics. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura Mountains. Switzerland has four official languages, German in the north and centre, French to the west, Italian in the south and Romansh in the southeast. Switzerland has a strong economy in finance and banking, and a long and strong tradition of political and military neutrality.
Munchenstein is a municipality in the district of Arlesheim, in the canton of Basel-Country, one of the 26 cantons of Switzerland. It shares borders with the cantons of Basel-Stadt, Solothurn, Jura and Aargau and with France and the German state of Baden-Württemberg. As of 2005, Munchenstein had a population of 11,726 people living within an area of 7.18 square kilometers. It is situated at an altitude of 297 meters above the sea level. 
It was from these environs that the present-day Bricker family of the United States emigrated to American, settling in Lancaster County of Pennsylvania. Recently, a member of that family returned to live in Switzerland, completing a circle in returning to the land of their forefathers.
