Shields - Wappen

All evidence indicates that the Iseli Family originated as Swiss peasants, many of whom were farmers. The various Iseli Shields are not related the Coat-of-Arms of any noble family. They are, for the most part, a product of a "shield fad" that took place during the 1700's. The Shields were simply the invention of specific individuals. Their descendants could use the same shield, or modified it to represent their own generation, or invent one of their own. Therefore it is important not to consider the shields as being "family shields" but rather shields of individuals.
