The "Kemperman" family genealogy has not been completely brought to light yet, but roughly we can identify a number of branches.
All branches have been ‘baptized’ with the names of the towns (all in the region of Arnhem) where the oldest identified bearer of the family name was identified.
The largest family branch is Etten-Gendringen-Huissen, dating back to around 1700. In 2001, we published the full genealogy in a first family volume.
In 2006, this was followed by a second publication for the branches Silvolde I, II en III and Withaegh as a small side branch.
There are other, smaller family branches named Hummelo-Keppel and Doesburg; in the forthcoming years, the genealogy of these branches will be further investigated and captured in new publications.
The Family Association has made several family books.

Beside people being interested in our history, we also look for genealogical data from Kemperman people in other countries, like birth certificates or birth announcements, as well as notifications of marriage and decease, from present and past.
In addition, interesting family stories from yesteryears will be welcomed to be included in future publications.
