Charpies, Switz to USA - Welcome Message
My father's family name is Charpie. This also appears in records as Charpié, Charpier, Charpia, Charpy, Sharpier, Sharpie, Sharpee, Sherpy and Sherpey. More variations are possible. Many of the Charpies in the USA have roots in a small village in Switzerland named Bévilard, with some also coming from France. I have a related surname list for my lineage at http://home.att.net/~r.charpie. For those researching Charpie or related genealogy, I have included a page of Bévilard photos, kindly provided by Norbert Charpié, a current resident of Bévilard. Am interested in exchanging info on common ancestors, in USA and France or Switzerland.
