Wow, what a lot of Dignans. But have any of you heard of the Dignands? My father, Charles Dignand, was born in Arcachon, France in ohh, maybe 1920 or so. The only Dignands I've ever found are myself and my children, and my two brothers and their children.
I've heard of plenty of Dignams, mostly from Irish backgrounds.
I even caught a whiff on the web of another Dignand somewhere in the USA, but couldn't follow him.
