I am trying to find my ancestors from Aettenschwil in the canton of Aargau Switzerland. They changed their name from Beautler to Butler when the emigrated to New Zealand in the middle of the 1800s. My Great great grand fathers name wa Johann Butler, his sons name was Bartholome.
hi i am also a descendant of the butlers from Aettenschwil in the canton of Aargau Switzerland, Josef Felix Butler is my great-great grandfather and he is the brother of your great-great grandfather johann, i am also trying to find out more about my family history and i may have information that you might not have, so i would be very grateful if you would reply.
i attached a photo of Josef Felix Butler, does he resemble Johann at all (if you have a picture)
Need assistance if its out there concerning locating my family tree or a starting point to start from. My dad was Roland T. Butler, and his father was Thomas R. Butler. I also know that my grandmother was Etta Belle Maxson.
Looking for any info on Francis Butler (b. about 1832) and family. They were living in Williamsburg, Dundas, Ontario in 1881 (wife and 8 children). He married Anna Bell (from Germany) and immigrated to US (St. Lawrence Co., northern NY) about 1890. At least 4 of the children came to northern NY also. Looking for info on Francis' parents and where they were from.
