Note: Some names, places, and dates shown are the best estimates of this researcher and are so indicated. Any name, place, or date with words such as about, maybe, or near associated with it should be independently verified if exact data is required. The Wetzel family name is very difficult to research because there were several early, large, and different Wetzel families who were using the same given names for their children. Also there is much erroneous research circulating around which many times leads new researchers of this family name down the wrong trail. I am not a Wetzel descendant. I researched the Wetzel family since Jacob Wetzel of Hereford Township, Berks Co PA, was a neighbor of my ancestor, Adam Kerchner. One of Adam's daughters, Eva Elizabeth Kerchner, married George Wetzel, Sr., son of Jacob Wetzel. Therefore, I researched the Wetzels in the hopes of learning more about my early Kerchners. If you find errors in my research and have the documentation to prove it, please feel free to contact me. I am always open and receptive to new information and evidence. If you use any information from these pages, please give proper credit.

Wetzel researchers may wish to contact
Michele Miller for possible assistance since she is a Wetzel descendant and an active Wetzel researcher. Please feel free to contact her if you have information to share about Wetzels.
