Family research has changed quite a bit since this 2001 posting. There are over 125 Hetzel entries or references found in the local resource under construction since 2007 called "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
Surnames connected with Hetzel in the index include Fuchs Raschka Bolzendahl Roehr Weimar Brand Eberle Gilbert Wagner Patkow Hoferer Rudolf Oswald Mohr Dhein Meyer Weimersen Kessler Wengert Wickert Jacob.
