Thank You for responding so quickly, I have asked my Aunt how my Grandmother might have met my Grandfather, but to her dismay, she cannot remember hearing how they met. I have most recently been to both Ham Nord and Beaumont photographing the churches and cemeteries. I have found that even with the well paved roads and speed limits, it must have been quite a distance to travel. My Aunt mentioned that her mother Leontine always missed her family, and longed for home, after seeing Beaumont first hand, I can understand, what a beautiful town. The more research I do the more information I have managed to find regarding the Miville aspect of the Deschenes name. In conversation with my Aunt who is now 81 years young, her mother never mentioned Miville dit Deschenes. I use the last name Deschenes exactly the way my Grandmother spelled it, I find it fascinating. I am familiar with the variations and am amazed at the history of the family. Any information would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
