I am researching my grandfather and his family. My grandfather was born 1 November 1896 in Lamentin, Martinique. According to his birth certificate, his mother's name was Christine LISER, age 19 years. However, based on his various applications over the years, he listed his parents as Gaston Antonie LISER and Leontine PROSPERE. However, I believe these were his grandparents, who raised him. My grandftaher left Martinique at the age of 12 and moved to Panama. I have no idea whith whom he moved there, but he attended school, graduated, and worked in the U.S. commissary as a bookkeeper until he headed for the U.S. 22 May 1922.
Any ideas on how to research French records would be helpful. Thank you.
