Hello, My name is Kelly Govro. I was adopted to Robert Varney Govro in Washington State in 1968. Robert passed in 1987, but from what I can remember, he was born in Vermont, served in WW 2 in the 12th Mtn division, and then moved to Washington State, around 1960, and later started a Ski School. His mothers name was emmy ( or emily ?), he had a brother, and a biological son from a previous marriage. My "dad" told me he was of French / Native American heritage,and his family had escaped France during the Bastile Days. ???He told me that the family name had been changed from Gauvreau or even Jovreaux. I had stumbled across the postings from 2004, and saw the conntction from Canada and Vermont, with the family name also present in MO, and believe there is a connection.My fathers birth mother is still alive in Port Angeles, Wa. and I would like more than anything to be able to make a connection to pass on to my now 4 yr old son. Our name is unusuall, and therefore I my hope is to understand as much as possible.Please Help.
