Most of the research for this site was done over 10 years ago, and I have to say, as I pick up the pieces to continue, much has changed regarding research sources – there is so much more available on the web now!
So I’ve found a site that transcribes the war memorials in Guernsey and came across two important references – to Celestine’s brother, Auguste and to Yves’ brother, Jean Baptiste.
This is the site http://www.greatwarci.net/
