I set this site up in October 2005. I commemorated it to my dad, Jerzy Kempik who died  in May 1969.

15th August 2010 begins the update. This site has become somewhat of a tragedy for me now as it can never be complete. Elaine and I would like to share this commemoration with our dearest love, Deborah our daughter. We lost Deborah on the 26th. July 2007. I have not had the inclination to get involved with the site till now, but over the next month or so I will set up a couple of extra pages and revamp the site a bit. Please let me know you are still visiting by leaving a message in my guest book.

I now have music on this web site, if you would like to hear my choice of music while you are visiting please make sure your sound is turned up. All good tunes. No head banging required, you may disagree. Please feel free to sing along, nothing would make me happier than the thought of you all singing in perfect harmony. Enjoy and as the song says, "Will ye no come back again"

SITE ESTABLISHED 17/10/05.

THIS IS OUR FAMILY CREST.
 
THE CREATION OF OUR CREST IS DESCRIBED BELOW.
LIS IS THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF POLISH WORD FOR FOX.
(Kempik is a sept of the Lis clan)
 
The description is as follows. A Silver arrow without a quill/feather in a red background, pointing up, crossed two times.
In the jewel above the crest is, in side profile, a red fox in a crown facing right.
There is an eleventh century legend connected with the times when this crest was created.
In 1158 Kazimier Odnowiciel (A POLISH KING) was hunting the Lithuanian Barbarians, he reached the city of Sochaczew.
They sent a knight from the LIS clan, with some men to look for the enemy and he found a strong group of the enemy.
He was not able to attack so he shot an arrow on fire, into the air to give a signal for reinforcements.
Reinforcements came and they defeated the enemy. The brave knight received an award, an arrow in his crest and his old sign - fox - was put into the jewel.
The crest is the most popular in the Krakow area, Mozowsze, Silesia and Lithuania.
About 130 families use the fox crest.
