Updating the LEBEGUE - THOMAS family


It's been almost 3 years since we've updated this branch of the tree. I found a mailing list today on Cousins77 with a few names similar to ours : THOMAS, LEBEGUE, DABON.

They were all researched by M. Jean COUSIN. I emailed him, and only a couple of hours later I got an email with extra information (3 generations and part confirmation of my hypothesis...).

I'm now stuck with a person : on the grave there are 3 persons I can't identify:
* Marguertie REMY, died after 6 days in 1895. Who's she the daughter of ? Definitely her mother must be a THOMAS ?
* Sophie MANCELLE, spouse DABON (and not widow), died at 64 in 1889 (meaning she was born in 1825). Who's she maried to ? M. Cousin sent me a "Marie Anne Sophie MANCEL 1776-1826). Very close, but at least one generation apart.
* Edmond THOMAS, died at 14 in 1851. My guess is that he is the brother of Adolphine THOMAS.

I think I need to go to the AD 77 again...

In the meantime, on Geneanet and on patro.com, I found many folks relating to the DABON in Moret-sur-Loing. 2 other branches too in Hericy and Montereau (close by). Looking for a link there as well.

extending the ancestry of the JOLLY and MONGE families

We have a new genealogist in the family: Inès JOLLY MONGE has been sending quite a bit of updates about her family on the JOLLY and MONGE sides. We have managed to connect her data to the rest of the tree in many places, including through the CORREA VERGARA branch twice, bringing her ancestry up to the conquistadores immediately.

Thanks for the information and welcome to the family tree. And by luck, she also lives in Paris...

Update: we've exchanged a bit more data, and we've hooked her up through 3 or 4 more main branches of Chilean families.

2 remote cousins send their data in

Images_1Interesting day. It has been a while since relatives have written to me. Today Ilse SCHULZ FAUNDEZ and Claire JACQUIN épouse MORVAN sent me an email each to update some of the data I have on the family genealogical tree.

Thanks a lot: the tree can only be up to date is you do send me your details. Please keep on doing so at rodrigo [at sign] sepulveda [dot] org.

Using MSN to pursue genealogical research

GinaTechnology can make wonders. I had a very long (several hours) chat last night on MSN Messenger with Gina SEPULVEDA ESCOBAR, the youngest daughter of the youngest brother of my grandfather (are you still following? ;).

It appears we met in 1986 once, at the funeral of the eldest sister of my grand-father, but that was almost 20 years ago ! I got her MSN Messenger ID through my 2nd degree cousin Cristan SEPULVEDA VILLEGAS (her nephew) who visited me here in Paris last year.

Results : lots of fun, a great laugh, and a completely updated tree (added missing names or dates, corrected some dates, put the children in the right order...) for her father's descendants!

In addition, we played an extra trick: I called up another cousin of hers in Canada, Ricardo MOLINA SEPULVEDA, whom she hadn't seen or talked to in about 40 years! Then Gina's sister Maria Eugenia SEPULVEDA ESCOBAR joined the conversation. Mind you, this was chatting with people located in Paris France, Montreal Canada, Los Angeles Chile and Concepcion Chile...  Isn't genealogy fun ?

PS: pix of Gina taken it seems 2 weeks ago only.

Solving the Renée de Dietrich mystery

We have finally come full circle. One of my wife's uncles, Philippe de Dietrich and myself have been trying to trace the youngest sister of one of their ancestors: Renée de Dietrich.
Written memories published by Philippe's mother years ago for the family, only mentionned the existence of this lady, Renée, without more information.

We have even come in touch with a family that thought they could descend from her for many years, until realizing their mistake.

Last year (at the French Archives for Oversees - CAOM - in Aix-en-Provence), I found Renée's birth certificate and wedding certificate to a M. Ernest FUSELLIER, whom she divorced later. Philippe found last week her death certificate (at the French Archives for people born outside of France, in Nantes), when she was only 25. Sad.

Here are the docs:

Adn_rene_de_dietrich Adm1_rene_de_dietrich_x_ernest_fuseillie Adm2_rene_de_dietrich_x_ernest_fuseillie Add_rene_de_dietrich

Just by coincidence, I got an email today from a person related to Ernest FUSELLIER, asking for more information. Funny isn'it ?

Internet reader adds 4 generations to the family tree ;)

DoncieuxAn Internet reader (Elysa VIRET) kindly sent me earlier this week an extract of her own family tree: it happens that she relates to my wife in the early 19th century; her ancestors Jean Baptiste DONCIEUX (born 1795) x Jeanne Etienette CELERIER (born 1796) are also ancestors of my wife. They originate from the town of Arlay, in the Jura region of France. It's very fortunate that she found this site as I haven't had time to go explore local archives there. Elysa has been doing her research in the local Archives Départementales (a PDF Document with 32 pages of facsimile documents is available here ) and I'm awaiting paper copies of all the documents she found: it's really great, as she added 24 ancestors to my wife's tree, ie. 4 generations back (click on the left pix for details), bringing that branch to the later years of the 17th century.

So folks, please check the above search bar, and try some family names. We might be related, and some of your work might help me, as some of my work might benefit you! ;) Do send any information in !

Family surname rules change in France today

ParcheminA new society law (dated March 4th 2002, modified JUne 10th 2003) starts today in France: all children born after January 1st, 2005 can bear either their father's surname, or their mother's surname, or a combination of both in whichever order.

Both parents need to register the child. It can be done only once for all unborn siblings, hence all kids will have the same name. For those children born before January 1st, 2005, they can also change their name, IF they were at least 13 years old, on September 1st, 2003.

If parents decide to use both their surnames, they will have to use 2 dashes (how stupid) to show it: Martin--Durant.

Liberation, among many other papers, is carrying the story (in French).
