I cannot remember what I put in my post, so do not know why it has been rr'd.
I think I wanted to know the birth place, as I gave a possible link to a French enterprise.
Ann, is your Mother a sister of Bernard's mother or father, or what is the relationship, as we cannot see his birth?
Thank-you.

You don't need to live in area to search the phone book which covers it.

BT directory is online

And all telephone directories are held in every main public library

Ahhhhhh, patchem, good find

Correct spelling makes all the difference
