The Common Room / Is Louis Roger really Eugene Gonat
« on: Monday 02 August 21 15:56 BST (UK)  »
In 1881 Wrexham ,  Wales there is Louis Roger b 1852 Paris ,  France. He is a currier. Unmarried.
In September 1882 he marries Mary Elizabeth Nadin in Chester.
 There is no image but his father is Casmia Roger. 1891 and he is still Louis Roger.

Louis Roger died in 1894 and made a will. His address is the same as 1891
Name:    Louis Roger Death Date: 5 Aug 1894
Death Place:    Denbighshire, Wales Probate Date:    19 Sep 1894
There is no entry in the deaths index but there is this.
Eugene Gonat Age: 42 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1852
Registration Quarter: Jul-Aug-Sep. Wrexham, Denbighshire,

He is buried in Wrexham Cemetery as Louis Roger.
One of his children is registered as
Name:    George Gun?T Roger
[George GUNAT Roger]
Registration Year: 1886 Registration Quarter: Apr-May-Jun   Wrexham

So now there is a mystery, is this the same man which is on Ancestry as a possible connection.
 Marriage in France

Father's Name:    François Cléophas Casimir Gonat
Mother's Name:    Françoise Virginie Guillien
Spouse's Name:    Eugène Jeanne Araïs héna Guerbet

Is there anything on this image that gives an occupation. I can`t understand.
Name:    Eugène Gonat Gender:    homme (Male) Marriage Age:    24
Record Type:    Mariage (Marriage) Birth Date:    13 sept. 1850 (13 Sep 1850)

So if this is the same man, what happened to his wife ,  and why did he leave France within 6 years of his marriage.
Any help will be much appreciated .

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / My first cousins results.
« on: Friday 30 July 21 17:02 BST (UK)  »
My first cousin, we are both female and
We share Grandparents.  Our Mothers were sisters.
She did a Ancestry DNA test hoping to trace relatives on her father's side , as her Grandfather and his Mother were both illegitimate.
The only matches she had were for her Grandmothers  family, this is the lady who married the illegitimate man. No relation to me. Nothing showed for her Mothers line.
I'm wondering if I have a test would it show any more on my Mothers side, given the fact nothing showed up for my cousin.
Sorry if this is a bit confusing.  ???
