ChallengeAZ 2016: W for William

My paternal grandfather was an only child but he had half-sisters and half-brothers, including William Tourville, sometimes called by the French equivalent Guillaume (unfortunately, I do not have pictures of him), born from the first marriage of my great-grandfather Joseph Tourville and Georgiana Dufault. My mother told me he was a cigar-maker. She said that they used to call him Ti-Roi (Little King) since he was born on January 6, 1872, in Montréal. He passed away in 1949. My mother never got to meet his first wife Delodia Rivest who died in 1928, but rather his second, Marguerite Leclair.


Letter W: 2% for the Hubou-Tourvilles’ first names.

Lots of William! Then, Walter, Warren, Wesley and Wilfred.

Kind of Funny



The 2016 ChallengeAZ is proposed by Sophie Boudarel of La Gazette des ancêtres
