Hi there, I hope this email meets you in good health, merci beaucoup pour votre assistance. I'm trying to help a friend research her family from Guadeloupe/St Martin.
My friend's grandmother's name is Angelique Chemont, she apparently was born in St Claude, Guadeloupe in Dec 1925. Her father's name was Gil Chemont, and he was from St Martin but lived in Guadeloupe. I checked http://www.geopatronyme.com and the number of Chemont is pretty small, and clustered in Guadeloupe and St Martin, so I assume they are related. I was in contact with a Pascal Chemont a while back, and he was going to find out from his mother, but I lost contact with him. Angelique's mother was from Antigua and when she was 11 years old, she went with her mother to Antigua because her maternal grandmother was sick, while there, there was some kind of conflict in Guadeloupe so they couldnt go back. She hasnt been back to Antigua since. Her father Gil, had 2 other daughters, Juliette and Lillianne, they were older than her, but we are not sure if he had other kids.
I am sure Gil Chemont is dead now, but we would be interested in trying to track down his family in St Martin or Guadeloupe, or even Juliette and Lillianne's families as well.
My friend Keisha is from St Croix and doesnt really speak French, and since I do, and also have an interest in genealogy, I figured it would be easier for me to do.
Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide
