Dear Stan,

I noticed that you posted an obit with the name of "Hamler" in it. As you will see, my maiden name is Hamler and I have been doing research about this surname for over 25 years. Can you tell me about your Hamler research?

I was born in the US and I have traced my family origins back to Gemmingen, Germany in 1698 when Nicholas Hammler married Eva Magdalena Keller. They moved to New York in 1717, then moved quickly to Somerset Co., New Jersey (where most Hammlers/Hamlers began in the US); my father was born in New Jersey in 1908.

I would love to hear from you about your Hamlers...

Sincerely, Kathleen Hamler Purchase
