It’s time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. Thanks to Randy for this challenge! This one is all about my Dad’s mother’s line.
My Dad’s mother’s name was Anna Madeleine Mazeres. She was born 17 Oct 1897 in San Francisco, CA and died 2 Feb 1984, also in San Francisco (though she lived in Oakland, CA most of her adult life). She outlived my grandfather by 10 years.
My Grandmother’s patrilineal line is as follows:
- Charles Mazeres dit Salanave (1868-1926),
- Jean Mazeres dit Salanave (1824-1893),
- Jean Pierre Mazeres (1794-1836)
- Jean Mazeres (1742-1825),
- Clement Mazeres (1722-1781),
- Jean Mazeres (1697-????),
- Jean Mazeres (1666-????)
- Bertrand Cambus (1640-????)
This is the end of her patrilineal line. The Mazeres surname is carried back through the maternal line from this point.
My Grandmother had one brother, Jean Emile Mazeres, born 29 Jun 1899 in San Francisco. Sadly, he died 24 Jun 1903, in Modesto, CA. My grandmother had a sister, but she died at the age of 2. My grandma was the only one of Brigitte Breilh’s children to survive, so there are no male descendants from her family for the Y-DNA test.
I hope to be able to work in the village of Castet soon so that I can carry this line back even further.
