eMail address;

I know that there are at least two spellings different from the original URWYLER. The two Americanized versions are URWILLER and URWILER. This is everything I have of our origins in Switzerland. We don't have all the dates and places. As you can see, I'm missing quite a bit of information. I have written some URWILER's and they had been told by their family that their name was once spelled URWYLER. However, they have lost most of their family history. I need to find out the missing links between the three surnames URWYLER, URWILLER, and URWILER.

It would appear that the generation to first come to America was generation 6 - Jakob & Elisabeth (Lerch) Urwyler. That is also the generation where the change in surname spelling occurred (probably to Americanize it.) #7 Samuel Urwiller is my great-great-great-grandfather. I'm generation #12. I do appreciate any and all help anyone can provide.
