Stephen: Do you have any knowledge of where your Wilhelmina was born? I assume she was foreign born? The name is very interesting and I've done some research. Thru the ages the name has evolved with variant spellings but still the same people involved. The same family name can be found as HANDEL, HAHNDEL, HANDL, HENDEL,HANDLER, HANDELER,HENDELER, HANDELMANN, etc. There are 4 different locations of origin: Schlesien, Lausitz, Bayern(Bavaria) and Bohemia (The Czech area).The name has been found in these areas in 1427, 1381, 1414, 1296. HANDL shows up in the year 739! Most interesting.
