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.

Isabelle Rassinot participated with The Musty Dusty Team during the 2017 Source-a-Thon, adding 200 sources to profiles.

Establishing the cousin connection with Arthur Rimbaud was very exciting. When I saw that he had Cuif ancestors from Chuffilly-Roche, I knew that there had to be a cousin relationship. I'm lucky that there are just enough surviving records to document it.

OK good. Guy also said to disconnect Adrienne from the Barrier father and false brother Gregoire. So I did. Then I can get my version of her merged with the better PPP profile. Thanks for your collaboration!

Isabelle, looks like we are both working on the Divivier and Vivier family. I've added some research notes to Barrier-9. Would you take a look and see if you agree? It seems that Gregoire should be separated from supposed sister Adrienne and let the Barrier family have their own tree.

Thanks, Isabelle!

That sounds good. It will be great to have those profiles sourced, and I'm looking forward to seeing the connections for Fresnel and Millerand when you have a chance to add them. I've just found a way to connect the Arago family, so that will be the next thing on my to-do list.

Hi Isabelle,

Thanks for connecting Cezanne! It was interesting to see the connection between Cezanne and Renoir. I went back recently and added some family members and sources to the Riopelle family, so the connection to the global tree is quite confident.

Dear Isabelle,

Honestly, don't know what should I do after reading this text below. Pls, help.

"Could the reference to "Nicolas Lemaire and Marie Castrie" as parents of Françoise Paigné, be removed from the biography? They were the parents of Nicole Lemaire, Jacques's daughter-in-law; not of his wife (and at the time children carried the name of their parents. The name of Françoise Paigné's father must have been Paigne or Paigné). Thanks !"
