In Reply to: Kimmerle's from Germany by Sue Kimmerle of 47

I've just begun searching for background on my family in earnest. My grandfather, August Kimmerle was born in NYC around 1868, and I'm going to get into census records, shipping records, etc. to get details. His parents came over from Germany, but I don't have any info on them yet. August later married Louisa Weimar and moved with his family (seven children including my father August Gabriel) to Baldwin LI and then lastly Sea Cliff LI. I've been told by Germans that Kimmerle with variations is a name from the Schwabia/Stuttgart area, and Gertrude's message seem to confirm that.
I've also run into the name Kuemmerle in Philadelphia to whcih I'm told a number of the family came. Does Fred Kemmerle have an email address? His book sounds like a treasure trove of info. All info eagerly welcome here!
