Kookie Hemperley

My name is Kookie.

Growing up in the ‘40s, we (my three brothers and I) played games like Red Rover, Red Rover, Hide and Seek (also known as Ghost in the Graveyard) and Blind Man’s Bluff. While genealogy is no game to me, I feel as if these game names could apply when I call on a lead and ask if I can “Come Over, Come Over”; ramble around graveyards looking for genealogical clues; or that I am blindfolded when groping for an ancestor that has become my brick wall. My goal is to break that wall down before I “Kick the Can”!
