Tom, has ANYbody ever figured out the real origin of our Lamars in France? I haven't asked about this in years! Ten years, perhaps... Surely, some day a little missing piece of information will turn up -- in an old armoire someplace (west of the Cevennes? near Lille in Flanders? in Nante? Who knows?). How can these people, who seem to me to have arrived over here with property and status, have such a hard-to-find origin? Tres weird, I think. Hope you are well.
