Thirnheim, about two miles southwest of Sinsheim in Baden, Germany, formerly the seat of a Mennonite congregation founded ca. l670 by Swiss immigrants. In 1731 (there is no earlier information) Rudolf Lienhard of Rohrbach was the preacher. The family names were Lienhard, Meyer, Herr, Brand, Plätscher, Wisler, Kratter, and Meili. This information is taken from a letter written to the Dutch Mennonite Committee of Foreign Needs at Amsterdam on 1 November 1731. Soon after 1731 this congregation, called Dürnen or Diernen or Dirnheim in the Dutch Naamlijst, was united with that of Immelhausen.
