The Maret / Moser Family
of the Canton of Bern, Switzerland

The Moser family is identified as Maret in many the family records of Evangelische-Reformierte Kirch Nidau (Bern).  It appears that the actual family name was Maret and that the name Moser may have been associated with the innkeepers position that Hans Rudolph Maret/Moser held at one period of time.
