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.
I know the basic Dutch vocabulary to understand "stamboom" records - but nothing else.

You had previously mentioned Tourly as a possible link between our trees-it turns out that you were right, though it's through the commune named Tourly rather than the surname. The common ancestors are Nicolas Bellard and Geneviève Baillet. That makes us even more closely related, as I believe the match is 8th cousins, three times removed. I'll try to add my side of the lineage in the next day or two.

In addition to Fay-les-Étangs, I also noticed that you have at least one ancestor from Boissy-le-Bois. My third-great grandmother (source of my Oise ancestry) was born there in 1860. She later emigrated to the United States in 1917 and lived out her years in my hometown.
