Wampler/Wampfler Database, File: he0


Last Update: 10-31-2011

NOTE: Children of same parent are not listed sequentially! see family tree.

MAIN SOURCE: the book by Fred B. Wampler {fbw-2} and other references in the Bibliography

This database is broken up into several files. The first file (he0) contains the European ancestors and relatives (Wampfler surname) of Hans Peter and Johann Christian Wampfler who immigrated to America in the 1740's. It also includes them and their siblings. Hans Peter's children are also in this file.

Johann Christian's children and their descendants are in a separate file (jc0) as are the descendants of each of Hans Peter's male children except Hans Adam (no current descendant info available) (three files, hg1, hm1 and hp1).

There is a separate file for the descendants and potential ancestors of Daniel Wampler (1770-1852), born in Maryland, died in Pennsylvania (file na0). His lineage may be from Hans Peter Jr. or from a 1708-1709 German immigrant. Most of the data supporting the latter lineage is in the form of a family tradition recorded by Edward Vance Wampler.

In addition, there is a file for the Jakob Wampfler line (ja0), a descendent of Hans Peter Sr.'s cousin Christian, and a file containing miscellaneous other entries (mc0).

In each case, the ID number starts with a letter identifier associated with the file. For example, he-2-1 is the ID number of Hans, son of Heinrich, who was two generations back from the immigrants to America. jc2-109 is the 109th person listed in the second generation after Johann Christian Wampfler who immigrated with his family in 1747 at the port of Philadelphia.

NOTE: With this numbering scheme the children of Hans Peter Sr. (files he0) and Johann Christian (file jc0) are listed as generation 1 even though they were also immigrants. In most cases, the progenitor of each branch of the various family trees is found in the he0.html file.
