i think a while back we messaged
i think i asked if you could see if my name was common or unusal, and if there are many with my last name.
im nearly 62 now, so im not worried about anyone knowing my real name. its in a banner with my family motto on my U210898 ps.
with bad health and no pennies, not to mention a passport, getting to france is a no go.
would be great to know anything you could find on my name, might have some distant relations.
ive used the library here as far as the 1700,s, and still didnt go back to france, must be from the 1600 or 1700,s jim
Hi there, Jimcracker.
Sorry for the delay.
I have found a number of "Deluce"s thanks to the search engine on the website of the French telephone book thingy (not sure what it's called in English, maybe it *is* just called a telephone book ).
So you can find their mail addresses and phone numbers. I'm going to copy and paste those and email them to you.
Also, there is a town called LucÚ near Chartres, which *might* be the origin of the name? It could mean "from LucÚ". Maybe.
ive replied to your email, i cant open the email on the active have sent the alternative i use at the cybershop
the baptismal name on the scroll i have is, son of lucy.
the motto, of truth and diligence
thankyou for any help you have given me. at on time i was told the name means,of light. but couldnt find it anywhere on the net. jimcracker,jim xx
I've resent just it to the other email address.
I know Lucy means something related with light, so...
ive tryed to find the connection to where the french side came from, but as i said ive reached the 1700, and any other seach would be in the parish records.
and you need a profesional searcher and they charge a lot.
during my early search i was told that the name was from the belgium huganouts, and they where at the time in france of the revolution, and they moved to london and lancashire. the elders that could read and write, in london, the others to the cotton trade. im from warrington, england now living in yorkshire. jim xx
from the thread you will remember you helped me with a list of names and things.
can you be good enough to find and resend for me, i lost the main list a while back when my cable email i had them on was lost, i had backup on my blueyonder with telewest.
i no longer have internet and virginmeadia just wiped my blueyonder email without warning.
if you can resend for me, i have my jimcracker7(att)activemail back, or my jimcracker7(att)hotmail.co.uk thanks jim jimcracker7.
hi and thanks
ive just printed them off, incase my hotmail goes kaput. jim
