My great grandfather Prudent Eugene Beauvois b 1873 was from HENRICHEMONT. I have his old army reserve book which luckily gives his parents names Louis & Francoise Foucher.Would love some help to discover more about my French family.

Thanks for your info Jambomama,

His parents are for sure Louis & Felicite cos they're named in his old army reserve papers. I'll have to keep digging and be patient! It's great to have Louis' parents names as well- I must have a look at this geneanet web site.
It's strange isn't it how I find extra info but end up more puzzled as to why Prudent Eugene isn't in the records!!!
Thanks again

Hello again!
Jambomama I went onto the geneanet site and got really lost!
I couldn't find any of the info you gave me - I must be doing something wrong! If you could give me some tips on negotiating the site I'd be really grateful.
Regards

Thanks jambomama,
I had registered but just a bit useless on the computer!
Found the family trees and have sent an email with an enquiry to one of the trees. Still couldn't see all the info you gave me but I'll get a helpful reply to my mail - in my best French!

Hello Jambomama,

Just wanted to tell you that the lady I contacted through geneanet was really helpful. She gave me a site http://registres18.free.fr that has transcriptions of all the BMD in the department 18 in France. I've been busy all afternoon and had a field day! Loads of info on the Beauvois family manaaged to go back to 1792!! I'm thrilled and want to thank you for your advice- couldn't have done it without you.
Regards
andree
