My name is Robert Kemp and this site was created as a means of developing our family tree and sharing family photos.
Inspiration for the project arose from a desire to document our family links and heritage thus recognising the richness of our many shared connections. Additionally, it builds on experiences enjoyed at family gatherings and reunions, particularly with members of the Doolin, Fuelling, Crisp, Wood, Florence and Coghill families, in addition to my own.
From initial research of archives and family random jottings, the project has progressed through the willingness of many people to provide additional information and share knowledge of their respective family groups. Thank you all for your contributions. As a number of gaps remain in various records, I would be grateful for any additional information to help complete names, dates, places and activities.
I suspect stories of this sort never end as more people are added to the family through births and marriages. Please make contact with me to suggest corrections or provide extra information and photographs for inclusion.
Ownership of the family tree information is not mine alone; it is shared by all in the extended family. I am merely a temporary custodian. The combined knowledge and data collected in the tree and web site is available to all who share our family connections.
I hope you will feel inspired to explore your wider family connections, to make contact with family members you may not have seen for years and, likewise, to connect with new family members you are discovering for the first time. Best Wishes.

I can remember being at your wedding at the Ann Street Presbyterian Church all those years ago when I was about to turn 21 years old. Wishing you both good health and happiness for the future. Love, Nola.
