After many years of digging, I finally have some dates/places in France for my Mingonet surname. Any advice on how to proceed from here would be appreciated.I have not done any research for French genealogy before.
Francois Mingonet (also spelled Meingonnet on a ship's list), born June 17, 1842 in Combrailles,Auvergne, France.
His father (per Francois' Florida death certificate 1922) was Jacques Mingonet.
1911 ship's list shows he had a son, Aime Meingonnet, residing in St. Etienne, France.
From 1889 - 1909, Francois resided with his brother, also Aime Mingonet, in Cohoes, Albany, New York.Francois was widowed.
I am specifically looking for: - any info on Jacques Mingonet (birth/death dates, marriage info, residence, etc.) - immigration info for brother Aime Mingonet, born ca 1848 in France.Supposedly immigrated in 1873 but I can't find anything. - living descendants of this line
