Marlene Hurney (marsmemories @t sio.midco.net), of Sioux Falls, SD, USA, writes: I am researching the WILLE surname. I see your Wille people were originally from Belgium. I am not sure where my Wille family is from but have read these families were from Belgium or France. From what I can see, the Wille families moved around a great deal and had left their home country because of religious persecution. If you are interested, please contact me.
