The purpose of this website is to document the family history of the KIEMLEs and KEMLEs.
Our name has many different spellings including:
If your family name is listed above and you're interested in finding out more about our shared family ancestry, welcome aboard. There's plenty about the Kiemle and Kemle families here.
Today I found four more spellings of our name; Keemle,Keehmle, Kuehmle & Kuemlen.
The name Lydia Keemle appears on her death Certificate No. 2388. Her maiden name was Lydia Miller and she married Richard Keemle. She died on 9th January 1910 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Also, we have the death of Maria T. Keehmle born 12 March 1839 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and died 28 January 1909.in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania per death certificate 9288. Her father was J J Ramberger born in Austria & mother was Mary L. Heartte born in Maryland. Obviously this is Mary's married name. So there's a Mr. Keehmle out there too.
Next there's Martin Kuehmle born 25 June 1853 in Pennsylvania and died 13 September 1914 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania per death certificate 92606. His father was Martin Kuehmle born in Germany & his mother was Louisa Reib also born in Germany.
Lastly there's Elisabetha Kuemlen who is the mother of Anna Catharina Silzer with father Johannes Silzer per GS Film number 193796. Anna was christened 28 January 1814.

Contributors About 35 years ago my father made a Kemle Family Tree but it had only a few entries. Then upon my retirement, many more names were added by researching church records. Now you can see our family tree which has about 2395 names and goes back to 1558 and is the result of many family contributors on the Kiemle-Kemle Family page. David Kemle

Vor ungefähr 35 Jahren erstellte mein Vater einen Stammbaum, der allerdings nur wenige Familienmitglieder aufwies. Nach meiner Pensionierung konnten sehr viele neue Einträge durch Recherchen verschiedener Kirchenbücher hinzugefügt werden. Hier finden Sie nun unseren Stammbaum mit mehreren hundert Namen, der bis ins Jahr 1558 zurückreicht. Viele helfende Familienmitglieder haben dies möglich gemacht. Die wohl wichtigsten sind:
Inge (Kiemle) Schollenberg - Sachsenheim, Germany
Horst Kiemle - Neuried, Germany
Barbara (Kiemle) Horner - Plano, Texas, USA
Maximilian Kiemle - Leimen, Germany
Dr. Peter Kiemle - Krefeld, Germany
Siegfried Kiemle - Seattle, Washington, USA
Ernest Kiemle - Red Creek, New York, USA
Heike & Thomas Kiemle - Ludwigsburg, Germany
David Kemle – Kent, Washington, USA
Bill Kemle - Paola, Kansas, USA
Steven Kemle - Mansfield, Ohio, USA
We have not been able to connect the Catholic branch of Kiemles to the Reformed branch. We expect that some Reformed Kiemles left Weil der Stadt, which is the first place we see Kiemles of Protestant faith. But so far, we cannot prove it because the fires in 1549 & 1645 in Pforzheim destroyed the records. There are definitely 2 branches to the family; Catholic & Evangelical. So we need to do more research to try to connect these families.
