Surnames: Le Bris, Lebris
Dear Shirley: This is a long shot … but if your email address is still current, I got it from a discussion between you and Sandi concerning the Le Bris (Lebris in New Caledonia) family. Please see the attached graphic.

I have shown a pedigree view from Ancestry.com from the perspective Maureen Adam (nee Kirk). I have also copied in my cousin Margaret Hart who has also been researching the Le Bris family background (Margaret’s mother was Adeline EM Le Brese’s sister). Note how some bright spark helped rewrite history by changing their name to Le Brese as they could not speak English when they came from New Caledonia.

My husband Stewart and I leave for Europe on Sunday 2 September (from Melbourne) where we are meeting up with Michel Durose (also CC’d) who lives in Brest (from whence Yves Le Bris came). Michel is a member of the Arbre Généalogique Brest he has been helping us track down the family and hopefully may be able to introduce Maureen to some living relatives during our stay in Brest on 7-10 September. Michel told us Lynette Twist (another of my relations) had been in touch with him. He is writing an article on the Le Bris family and would love to hear from her (and you no doubt).

We hope to hear from you,
Regards,
Maureen & Stewart
