I am unsure if the connection is here, but other emails in this forum suggest that it is. The Historische Vereinigung Wynental (Wynental Historical Society) web site references a German language analysis of the Wynental surname, Häfeli. The Wynental is the Wyne River Valley region of Aargau. This is the area from which at least one branch of Hunzikers emigrated.

Membership in the society is fairly nominal -- I believe that at recent exchange rates the annual fee was less than $10.

The internet address (most content is still in German but is being translated) is

Other contact information is:

Tannenweg 11
5734 Reinach
Aargau, Switzerland
tel: 062 771 92 61

A well-published Swiss genealogist, Dr. Peter Steiner, is the director of the Historische Vereinigung Wynental. Dr. Steiner has written several genealogical texts related to Aargau (in German) and compiles and sells CD's of church records for

Leutwil, Dürrenäsch & Boniswil-Oberdorf, 1573 - 1820
Gontenschwil & Zetzwil, 1558 - 1816

I do not have any affiliation with Historische Vereinigung Wynental or Dr. Steiner other than some past correspondence.
