I have just returned from Europe where I spent several days in Gampelen, Switzerland. I am related to the following families from there: Wenker, Meister, Dietrich, Anker, and Kuenzi. Of course the spellings have been modified over the years, which sometimes makes it hard to track. Members of the families have also lived in Thun, Ins, Erlach, and (I am sure) several other places in that area.
If you have any information and are willing to share, I would greatly appreciate it. My line came to the US in mid 1800's and are mostly centralized in Middle Tennessee, although there are some scattered in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and Indiana/Illinois.
