About Sources

Basic hints on how to differentiate a source which you should consider uncertain. This crucial information is unfortunately hidden in the "Uncertain" help page.


I was born and raised in a small village ouside the suburbs of Paris, France. My father is from the same village; his mother was Swiss-born. My mother on the other hand, is a true Fleming from Lille, with lots of Belgian ancestors.

I work full time as a computer programmer. Favorite hobbies are genealogy, cross-stitching, reading and - when I am not too tired of feeding my three teenage or pre-teen daughters - cooking. I also look forward to having more time to travel, in the future.

My family tree was started more than 30 years ago with data from my great-grandparents "livret de famille" - the small booklet the mayor gives you when you get married, which is an official document. I thought my great-great-grandma had an interesting name and that's how I caught the bug.

In spite of my extensive Belgian ancestry (overwhelmingly Flemish), I can't speak Dutch. I read just enough of it to read civil registration records, though.

Hi Isabelle,

I seem to have opened a path to connect a number of noble families in southwestern France through the descendants of Marie Genevieve Jolliet-16. I wonder if it could help us connect some French notables-it would be great if you could check against Geneanet at your convenience. I couldn't tell if the Chuppin de Montulé daughters have living descendants, but the Grignon daughters appear to have plenty.

I'm so stupid. I didn't realize Lnuk stood for Last Name Unknown. I'll fix it now. Thank you!

Thanks Isabelle! I’ll work on connecting him through that line

Hi Isabelle

Thanks for your email with respect to abbreviation and the Denhoff/Donhoff Family (which although is sometime back in family history is actually the most common name in my almost 8k genealogy)

When I did this I didn’t view it as an abbreviation but a correct Prussian convention in the Adels and elsewhere to distinguish the vons that are noble from those who are “of” a geographical location.

In retrospect, I wish that all would observe this convention because it is easier for those knowing little background to know whether the name is noble or not - as this otherwise creates a lot of confusion for Americans

However, if you wish, I will be more than happy to change them all

Hi! I've added the French Roots project's name guidelines to the Name Field Guidelines page. I also added a "see also" under the Acadians' entry. Not sure how to address French-speaking Belgians ... any suggestions?

Hi I just got a change to a tag completed by you and have a question since I went to some trouble to put the original tag on. It was decided at the G2G form that Native Americans would use the Tribe name as the LNAB and not just the generic Native American tag. Pretty sure if someone is a Native American and they have no LNAB we are supposed to use in my case Ojibwa why would that be 'retired'. See Thanks, Andy.

Oh I get it now, that's a place. I did look in their archives and did not say anyone births in this family through 1692. Will try to pick it up again soon. That old French writing can be so hard to read!

Thanks for your fast and informative response, Isabelle. What is Igé?

I'm sure the Data Doctors would have a lively discussion about degrees of "fictional"!
