I started getting into genealogy thanks to Ancestry.com and I have run into a brick wall. I am looking for the parents of Christopher Stukey (born somewhere between 1843 and 1848 in Switzerland) his wife is Cornelia Williams, born 1848. He eventually settled and died in Lewis County, NY. The area of Switzerland he was born in that I have found online was listed as "Lauraine, Switzerland" which I have looked for and can't seem to find anywhere. I am just very curious as to who his parents were and how far back I can find this, as this is where my last name, "Stukey" comes from. Any help would be appreciated greatly, thank you.
Here is (sadly) the most descriptive thing I have found as far as Lauraine... http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=jonsaunders&id=I95888
