Summer 2002 Wampler/Wampfler Genealogy Newsletter
RETURN to INDEX
As has been my recent behavior, this newsletter and my responses to
your many helpful messages are late in coming. I have no excuse
except for too many interests and not enough time. In any case, I
truely appreciate all your mail messages and helpful material. With
this newsletter I will have processed mail up to mid June, 2002.
If you sent something and it does not appear on the Web site and/or
you received no response to date (June 18, 2002), then your message
probably fell through the cracks... JW
Those of you who have been involved with Wampler and Wampfler
genealogy for some time will be interested in the recently provided
linkage between the Wampflers and the Wamplers in America. This
data supplied by Betsy Johnson now ties the family tree originally provided by
Ted Thrasher to the descendants of Heinrich Wampfler. The new lineage of patriarch
of this tree, [ja-3-1] Christen, WAMPFLER (1745), is
l. [he-3-1]Heinrich->[he-2-1]Hans->[he-1-4]Hans (Johannes)->[he0-6]Christian=>
I am trying to continue to organized the web site so that a printed
version will make sense. Thus, the contents page will list everything
on the site either as parts of the two major sections or the Appendex
material. The real problem with printing it is the volume of material
in the database itself. While everything else will fit in a 1" notebook,
the printed database and family trees require 2 large
notebooks. I'm trying to reformat these large files to have less
white space and more information per printed page. I'll let you
know when and if this works... JW
Change in Source References:
In the interest of economy of space a source will now be mentioned
only at one entry in the database and other entries will be by
reference to that one.
For other changes and additions see the Updates Page.
The database if full of information in a dry and condensed format, but the lives that
this information refers too have often been complex and exciting. Indeed,
much of the material of interest in one of our family member's lives is in the details.
Thus, I've begun to write short biographical sketches for selected individuals from the
family where I have enough information to make a fairly complete story. IF YOU ARE
INTERESTED IN WRITING SUCH A SKETCH FOR ONE OF YOUR WAMPLER OR WAMPFLER ANCESTORS, PLEASE
SUBMIT IT FOR CONSIDERATION. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT A SKETCH OF ANY LIVING PERSON. FOR NOW,
LET'S ONLY POST SKETCHES FOR PEOPLE BORN BEFORE 1900. KEEP THE WORD COUNT SOMEWHERE
SHORT OF 3000 WORDS. PLEASE INCLUDE ALL REFERENCES AND DO NOT QUOTE PUBLISHED MATERIAL
WITHOUT ATTRIBUTION. WE HAVE LIMITED SPACE FOR ACCOMPANYING PHOTOS. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO
REJECT, EDIT OR REFORMAT ANY SUBMITTED MATERIAL.
The first two of these sketches are of
Philip Wampler [hp3-1] of Maryland and Ohio
Edward Wampler [hp4-2] of Dayton, Ohio, and Johnson County Missouri
