The Zwahlen families lived near the area where Italy, Switzerland and France come together and some Zwahlen/Zwallen families live in France with that spelling where others used Chevalier. The Celts originally were in the Mediteranian area before migrating to the Highlands and later to Scotland and Ireland. There were several Clans that remained in Switzerland and became the Zwahlens. There are few written records of these people as the had only a spoken language. Most of what we know came from others that recorded interactions.
