Robin,
That's very helpful. Sigriswil is just north of Lake Thun, and a very pretty place as well.
The website you need to use is the excellent www.familysearch.org. Enter the first name, last name (with a space, i.e. von gunten) & Switzerland, and you'll end up with 61 hits.
However the only marriage to a Anna Kaempf is unsourced, so I'm uncertain of it's provenance. You will find "your" Gottleib, but married to Louise Zysset.
Anyway, the above will get you going.
If you need more info on researching your Swiss ancestors, this website is very useful: http://www.eye.ch/swissgen/schweiz-en.html
good luck!
