How can I trace forwards - Herber Gerald Kemp


Active member
I'm trying to piece together the tree on a branch of the family that had a falling out around the 20's-40's.

My great grand father Tom Kemp, had a brother 16/17 years his junior

Herbert Gerald (or Jerald?) Kemp born in Thanet to Herbert John Kemp and Florence J Brook.

Is there any way I can trace forwards to find out what happened to him and if he has any living relatives?

It would be nice to make contact if there's another branch of the family out there? I only recently found out there had been a falling out all those years ago.

I'm not really sure how to start looking to go forward?

I don't know if it relates to this relation esp as I'm sure he was known as Bert - but I remember talk when I was little about an Uncle Gerald / Jerald having gone to South Africa never to be heard from again - only he's the only person I've found in the recent-ish part of the tree with the name Gerald / Jerald involved.

Any tips gratefully received!
