I started researching my family, as an amateur genealogist, of course that hasn't changed I still consider myself an amateur...although I have gained a lot of knowledge in the past 19 years of researching. What started as a hobby quickly became an obsession for me. After getting my first computer I soon found many internet family members with the common goal of finding our ancestors. Every time one solves a possible connection it is a real reward. I have had a lot of help from others, as well I have assisted many with their research and have made many new friends in so doing. Joining Find A Grave is my way of "paying it forward".
I noticed on a message about the Wapella cemetery that you are related to the Steinke family. My husband has an uncle who married a Steinke. My husband's family, the Klingers, were from the Wapella area. We seem to have some similarities in our research.
William Wannop Bryson Hi there. I was searching the internet and came across your post on here. In my family there is a William Wannop Bryson who is 11 in 1911 and so fits your time frame. Is it possible he was from Co. Antrim in. Northern ireland? If so, I have information on some of the rest of his family including the wannop family going back to the 17th century. Wannop was his grandmother's maiden name. Because it was such an unusual middle name it was incorrectly transcribed on the census. Contact me if this sounds right. Steve
