I know this page is old but my grandmother claims that she (therefore I am too) is a descendant of Kaiser Wilhelm. what research do you have that helped you link him to yourself? I cannot seem to find much to help support my grandmother's claim. her mother's maiden name was Kyser (Kyser Capo was our family business) she said that when my family migrated to the US they changed the spelling of the name.
