Trub

Trub is one of the largest municipalities of Switzerland (62 km²) in size, but not in population. It is located in the Emmental region of the canton of Bern in the district of Signau.

Today, Trub has just under 1,700 inhabitants (2004), but as a result of centuries of emigration from the Emmental region, over 43,000 people are registered as citizens of Trub and about 1 in 160 Swiss citizens trace their ancestry back to this community. The main attraction of the Fankhauser farm house in Trub dates back to 1601 and is the origin of the Fankhauser and Funkhouser families, which have since migrated to Virginia, United States.
