I'm a Norwegian girl who want to find any of my ancestors from France.
Here's the little I know:
Alfonse (Alphonse) Toussaint was born around 1870 (+/- 10) in Elsace. He and his wife (name unknown) had four children. His wife died during her fifth pregnancy in 1910, 32 yrs old.
Children: - Charles (went to America) - Alfonse - René - Angele (Angelique) Marie
Angele (Angelique) Marie Toussaint was born about 05.05.1903 in Ste. Marie Aux Mines and died in Strasbourg about 10.11.1997. In between she lived in Mulhouse. She was never married, but had an affair with a married man for several years.(We know his name, and the names of his two children)
07.17.1927 Angele gave birth to my grandmother, Colette Jeanne Toussaint. Her father is listed as NN... Colette grew up in an orphanage in Mulhouse. At the age of 12, her mother came to get her back. Colette stayed with her mother until she was 18. She then got very ill and were in a hospital for six months. Then she had a month of recreation in Switzerland. From age 19 she lived in Sarrebourg with Charles and Yvonne Krai (?). The summer 1951 she moved to Norway and shortly after married my grandfather.
My grandmother has been trying for several years to find the name of her father, or names of any relatives. She is now 82 years old, and I really want to help her. So if someone have any information at all about the people I've listed, please let me know.
