I was born in the USA of French parents - we moved to France a few months after I turned 9. I already had an interest in family history then, perhaps because I had been so far removed from my roots: I built my first tree on cards. As a teenager, I followed my grandparents' research and soon after, began storing the information I had collected using the first generation of genealogy software (Windows had not yet been developed). The next step was to research on my own, investigating the different branches. The birth of my son was an incentive for conducting research abroad, first on his paternal lineage, then to help his distant "cousins" out. Today, I am committed to assisting anyone looking for their origins, trying to reconnect with their family and wanting to pass on their history.
