This space will feature a different ancestor as I get a chance to
summary my research.
I highlight a member of an interesting line in my
family tree, Dr. Francis Joseph Pahud de Valangin. Still a
lot to learn of this famous family, but an internet connection
with a remote cousin helped clear up a lot.
In addition, I had a chance to visit London
in 2006 and
saw the memorial plaque to his wife and daughter in the St. Gilles Cripplegate church.
In 2012, we visited the George Washington Memorial Masonic Lodge
in Alexandria Virginia to view a portrait of Francis, and his ancient
here to learn more!
