In late 1993, I started again. I looked up my father's cousin, Worth Kemps, and wrote him a letter. He and his family were the only other persons named Kemps that were clearly related to me. He called me on his 80th birthday and I taped the conversation. He sent me his family information and I sent him a copy of all my research. I continue to exchange Christmas Cards and family updates with his wife and one son.
In 1999, I bought a copy of Family Tree Maker. I proceeded to load it up with all the information that I had collected. I also went to Rosehill Cemetery and found my grandfather's grave.
