Check out the Kempter "home town" of Kempten. Unfortunately, the Kempten page no longer has an english version.

Interesting info from Guido Kempter:

"Maybe you'll note the difference between two towns in Germany: there is Kempten in Allgaeu (our origin) and there is Kempen near the Netherlands. Both towns gives some families their names. And did you know that our first ancestor entered in the books was a shoemaker in Ravensburg?"

Did you know?
