Our family are from UP Michigan. My father Raymond DeLloyd Le Claire was in the US Navy during WW2 and came New Zealand where he met my mother, Ngaira. They married during the war and at the end of the war she joined him in the States. My father's family are from the UP. His father was Jerry Clifford Le Claire and his mother was Pluma Bellows.My American family live mostly around Detroit and Flint with some still up further and around Manistique.So you see, we're everywhere!I understand that the LeClercs came down from Canada to start a sawmill in the UP and changed their name to Le Claire.
We are the only family in New Zealand and that makes us unique! (population 3.8million). I have two brothers.My parents have deceased.
