Weisel Ancestors of Hesse-Darmstadt

Weisel Ancestors of Hesse-Darmstadt (1400-1900)

History and genealogy of the Weisel surname.
Includes spellings of Vonweisel, Weisell, Weissel, Wiysel, and Wysel.

Curiosity about the origins of my Weisel ancestors was the motivation to begin searching for my roots in the spring of 1998. Dates, names, where they came from was unknown, but we did know we were of German descent.

I was successful in tracing my family back to about 1590 in Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany. In the process of this research I have been collecting data and information on other Weisel families from the US and Germany. So I can share this data, I have allocated a portion of this homepage to serve as a forum for the collection and exchange of information for the Weisel surname.
