For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I started in genealogy back in the 70's. Since then, I have become the "designated" family historian. Besides working on the numerous family lines on my side, I also research my husband's sides along with other in-laws trees. I love history and this is one great way to fuel the passion.

Actually Chollage and Triem both originated in France. it goes back to about the 1500s. I have just put up another research booklet on my family site about some of the names I'm researching. You may want to download it. I think it is about 5 pages in pdf format.
http://theWaltonFamily.name. Go to Downloads then Research Notes. You can also follow the link to the family tree where I'm starting to build the Triem portion.
It will be easier to contact me at my genealogy email. That helps me keep everything genealogy in one place. Walton dot Genealogy at gmail dot com.
