Welcome to our Barner Family Reunion website. These pages are devoted to the descendants of Adam Barner who immigrated at an early age from Switzerland to America in 1749 and settled in Pennsylvania. These pages are new and will continue to evolve with history and content about the Barner family. Hopefully you will find something here that will arouse your interest enough to join us at the next annual reunion.
