Searching for my brother

I am searching for my younger brother David Lloyd Smeilski DOB August 28, 1955. Adopted parents changed his name and they had a boy and a girl.
David wherever you are do not hide from us. We are not the ones you should be blaming when you were placed in Child & Family. We had nothing to do with that. We were also placed in good homes and the parents who raised me took good care of me.
Our real mother was Madeline (Catcheway) Catagas DOB June 7, 1932.
Wherever you are, please have forgiveness and give me a call so that we can meet you.
From your sister

HAMMERMEISTER, Leduc, ALberta, 1900s

I'm looking for information on John (Johann) Hammermeister (b. abt 1887) and his wife, Carolina(b. abt 1897.) They had several children, Edward, Eleanor(August, 1910,) and Clarence(November, 1914,) while still in Canada, then Alice when they moved to Puyallup, WA. I am Ckarence's daughter. In some documents, they are listed as russian, or german-speaking russians, but my Auntie Alice insists they were pure prussian. I don't know my grandmother's maiden name, or when either family immigrated to Canada, or exactly from where, although I was told it was outside of Minsk. Thanks for any help.

Arthur Kean

Looking to contact Arthur Kean - known to be researching the same family as myself but does not seem to have been heard from for about 3 years? I know he was living in the Tottenham, Ontario area of Canada and his family originally came from Aberdeen, Scotland. I have a direct family link through my maternal grandmother & would love to be able to contact him to let my mother know what happened to the branch that left for Canada/America as news and information eventually stopped when my grandmother died in 1991 but then the realisation that there was so much we did not know!! I have photos and letters I would love to share, please let me know if you can help locate Arthur or his family? I have tried as many genealogy sites as possible.....Jane
