Thanks for replying and thank you for the informations. Though, I'd have one more question for you. Where exactly did you get that Jean V*, ancestor, came from Del, in Larochelle? I just need the proof... There were not so many Voyne in that area in the early 1600. They were located more in Franche-Comte then in Larochelle. I'm doing a research, and will be writing a book on the Venne family. Thanks for answering... Pierre.
