I found you in the Arnal book. It appears that your brother Grant has had some success in getting his books published. Since it has been some time since your post, I was wondering if you have been back to France. The visit to La Malene is an interesting one. Jerome and Francoise Lauret were running L'Auberge de L'Embarcedere when I was there. Their mother Jaqueline Lauret (nee Arnal) is the last living Arnal to live in our ancestral home. I hope you take the time to meet them and visit the church and small town square. I also drove up the mountain to Drigas - that is where your great grandfather grew up before coming to Canada. It was worth the treacherous drive up the winding mountain road. For a special treat, you may want to spend a night at Chateau de la Caze - this plan is absolutely stunning. Happy travels!
