I will try,thankyou.

I contacted Alan Andeton on the 25/11/12 after confirming that the Louie kemp on his tree was definately the one I was trying to trace. His wife is a Kemp and I asked if they had any more information on Louie.He opened my message but did not reply.

Alan's wife's grandfather is brother to W.J.P Kemp Louie's father.

You know their names.....try

Or look in the phone on line very careful when making any approach if you do find anyone connected...............

....................they may be totally unaware of your existence.

When did you try to make contact with the other person on here with Louie in her tree?

Has she opened your message?

Did you write your own message.......or did you send GR's automatic one?

Thankyou for the information you have sent. NORMA

You have ticked my post as answered, which makes it look as if your query has been answered.
Please untick my response so people continue looking.
So the birth I gave was wrong, and Louie was not born in the region where she married.

Births Sep 1911
Kemp Louie Wear Dewsbury 9b 974

Marriages Sep 1942
Cox Albert Kemp Manchester 8d 643
Kemp Louie Cox Manchester 8d 643

Presumably her parents' marriage
Marriages Jun 1905
KEMP William Joseph P Dewsbury 9b 1170
WEAR Louisa Dewsbury 9b 1170

Have you looked for births on free bmd?

You have not said how you are related to them.

Do you know when and where Louie died?
