I'm looking for information on my great grandparents and their parents.
His name was Charles Kampen, born 1875, died 1933.
He married Lydia Rottke, daughter of William Rottke.
They had 5 children.
They lived in Waseca county Minnesota and are buried in the
Woodville cemetary in Waseca.
I beleive Charles father was Henry, but have been unable to
locate informtion to prove that.

My father (Gordon E. Kampen) was born in Waseca Minnesota, and now lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I don't have his number on me, but I think it is listed.

Hi Frank,

The Kampen-family I am researching comes from
The Netherlands, province Groingen. Any connections
to what you 've got ?

Johan Kampen.

Dear Johan,

I looked up the name Kampen wondering if there might be a connection to my Janssen ancestry line. My was Maria KAMPEN Scholte, b. in Bellingvolde and md to a Jan Temmes Janssen b. in Neuw Schans (spelling??). Do not know who their parents were. Their son, Wiert, was born in Nieuw Beerta, Groningen in 1857, and came to America in the latter 1800's. As far as I know, he was their only child to come to the U.S. I have no record about this family in Metherlands except what I could get from the old census records in that country. Thought with Maria's middle name being Kampen, there might be a slight chance that she somehow ties to your Kampen family. THANKS!
