My family name is Kempler. My father was Joseph Kempler, one of five children of Jacob Kempler and Paula (or Polly) nee Adler. Jacob Kempler was born in Poland around 1870 and fled the pogroms. My father was born in London in 1908. Apart from other direct descendants of my grandfather, whom I know, my paternal grandfather had a brother, Adolf, who lived in London and died in the late 1950s or early 1960s. The owners of the Kempler Hotel in Lugano, Switzerland, were also closely related to my grandfather, but I don't know the exact relationship. Here in London, there are few, if any family records still in existence. If you have any information relating to the family, and how the different bits of it may link up, I would be interested to hear.
