In 1999, I started documenting the family tree of my great grandfather Simon Kaminski.With the generous input of Art Kamp, Don Bloomfield and Annie Burkell, the "tree" has grown to incorporate 475 individuals and 160 surnames dating back to 1780.
Simon Kaminski immigrated to Rochester, NY around 1890.By 1920, most of his decendents, including his son Edward in Texas, were using "KAMP" as their surname.I could not find any formal or legal documentation of this change.
Contact me via email have any questions or have any additional information information on the family.
