In Reply to: Witwer-Whitmer relationship by Mickal Witwer of 351

There is pretty clear evidence that both WITMER families and WITWER families existed in Switzerland in the 1500's and 1600's, and that both independently came to America in the 1700's.

I have yet to see any examples of confusion or change between the names in any records.

I would say they are two distinct families.
