I'm reposting a message from another forum in case anybody here has advice. The original poster has been advised to contact the mairie, Connexion newspaper etc. But I recall trying to trace a family member, and the urgency, before my father died and the difficult I had. It must be worse doing it in a foreign language and country so I'm keen to try and help, therefore spreading the word. If you have any tips or know these people please let me know and I will pass it on. Thanks.
Hi, I am trying to trace my Uncle and Aunt who moved to France some years ago. They have moved on from the last address and phone number we had for them.
Their names are Bobby (Robert) and Pauline Thomas, my mum is not sure on his year of birth but its the 5th October around 1953.
They were last known (3-4 years ago) to be running and bed and breakfast in Montignac in Bougneau and all we know is that they was moving on to somewhere bigger.
I have tried facebook, google, French version of yellow pages but with such a common name it seems impossible.
Does anyone recognise the names?
Does anyone have any other suggestions to try and find them? I maybe thought of the French version of companies house as they will probably be running a business.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated as my mum is getting on now and would like to get back in touch with her little brother.
