Genealogical research in Switzerland - a little howto (Posted by erichiseli on Tuesday, January 03, 2006 - 12:10 PM)
All evidence indicates that the Iseli Family originated as Swiss peasants, many of whom were farmers. The various Iseli Shields are not related the Coat-of-Arms of any noble family. They are, for the most part, a product of a "shield fad" that took place during the 1700's. The Shields were simply the invention of specific individuals. Their descendants could use the same shield, or modified it to represent their own generation, or invent one of their own. Therefore it is important not to consider the shields as being "family shields" but rather shields of individuals.
Who's who - Notable members of the family (Posted by transfer on Monday, January 02, 2006 - 08:05 AM)
This interesting branch of the Family was started by Johannes Iseli, a Swiss mercenary working for the Dutch in colonial Indonesia. After WWII, most of his descendants left Indonesia during the difficult early day of independence. Most of family resettled in Holland, but a few immigrated to America in the 1950's.
