Looking for information thru internet about my parents overseas, I found your mail (I leave in Paris, France).
Be aware that I belong to the branch of Farny's settled in Alsace, moving to Algeria in 1870 when Alsace was occupied by Germany, and moving back to France in 1962 when Algeria became independant.
From the same root in Alsace, in two previous migration instances, other members of my family had moved to the US; they are the famous painter Henry Farny who lived in Cincinnati; and the famous co-founder of the Farny Wurlitzer electronic organs company.
Some of my cousins in France collected a genealogy bank showing that the oldest identified Farny in France was coming to Alsace with his family from Switzerland (very probably due to their Amish beliefs).
I would strongly appreciate having exchange of information with you. Please contact me at the address firstname.lastname@example.org
