This site is dedicated to providing and soliciting genealogical information on the Wiland surname. There are only about 200 households in the United States with the Wiland surname. Most of those that spell the name as Wiland are believed to be descended from either Michael Wiland (????-ca 1794) or William Wiland (ca1785-1854) and are of German or German-Swiss ancestry. There is speculation that these two may be related but no connection between the two has yet been established. Additionally, the parents of both Michael and William have not yet been identified.  Michael Wiland and his family lived most of their lives in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. William Wiland and his family lived most of their lives in Allegany County. Maryland; Garrett County, Maryland; and Somerset County, Pennsylvania.

There are a few Wilands not related to Michael or William.  These descend from Stanley Wiland (also Wigand/Wilant) and from Peter J. Wiland. Stanley Wiland lived most of his life in Lucas County, Ohio after emigrating from Poland. Many of his descendants later lived in Multnomah County, Oregon. Peter J. Wiland Jr lived in Detroit, Michigan and emigrated from Germany or Poland. If anyone can provide any additional Wiland lines, we will be happy to place them on this page.

The following list of descendants trace only the Wiland surname, so descendants of the daughters are not shown here. Additionally, only the first few generations of Wilands are shown on this page. However, databases maintained offline contain more complete information for all descendants including the descendants of daughters. These databases have not been provided online but are maintained by the following persons and inquiries for further information from these databases should be forwarded to them:

Michael Wiland descendants - Contact Bruce L.Wiland. There are very few living descendants of Michael Wiland that still maintain the Wiland surname. Bruce Wiland is probably the only descendant left that stills uses the original spelling but there are a handful of descendants which use "Weiland" as the surname spelling.

William Wiland descendants - Contact Linda Wiland (a database for William Wiland descendants was originally created by Linda's father Olin K. Wiland who passed away in 2014)

Charles Stanislaw "Stanley" Wiland descendants - Contact Rachael Wiland

The information provided will hopefully allow you to place yourself in one of the Wiland lines. If not, you may email Bruce Wiland, and we will try to see where you fit. Additions and corrections to the databases for Michael Wiland and William Wiland are always welcome. If anyone can provide any information on the parents of Michael or William Wiland, we will be eternally grateful.
