are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships that form a
subgroup of the Mennonite churches. The Amish are known for simple living,
plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern
technology. The history of the Amish church began with a schism in
Switzerland within a group of Swiss and Alsatian Anabaptists in 1693 led by
Jakob Ammann.^[2] Those who followed Ammann became known as Amish.^[3]

In the early 18th century, many Amish and Mennonites emigrated to
Pennsylvania for a variety of reasons. Today, the most traditional
descendants of the Amish continue to speak Pennsylvania German, also known
as Pennsylvania Dutch. However, a dialect of Swiss German predominates in
some Old Order Amish communities, especially in the American state of
Indiana.^[4] As of 2000, over 165,000 Old Order Amish live in the United
States and approximately 1,500 live in Canada.^[5] A 2008 study suggested

their population had grown by 10 percent in
