My grandparents are buried in Fraize, and members are listed on many war memorials in the area.
Is there anywhere you don't have family in France? As soon as somebody mentions anywhere in France - You pipe up that you have family there - I'm glad i live in Spain.

I have a very large French family, my father was one of 11 children. His family have spread across France. I too am glad you live in Spain, but I feel sorry for the Spanish (Oh, I have Spanish family - by marriage - as well - they are also French).

It is just that every few posts you have to keep telling us that you have family there or from there - it gets rather childish.

Now you are really winding me up and clearly still haven't understood the title of the thread, albeit there are lots and lots of clues in Clic Clac's, Smeg's and my post.

Which perhaps goes to show that age and sagesse don't necessarily go together.

I have a message for you Baldi - get off my back!

Well, I think this thread has degenerated about as far as it can go.
