"Nice poems about the french community of "Michelinville"!
I have quite a lot of information about the Bretons in Milltown but too much to share on this forum.I have already left a few posts on this site.
Did your parents/ grandparents live in Milltown? If so, what were their names?
My grand parents Henri and Frances BORDIER lived at 78 South street (it was then 72).
My mother Marie and her brother Henri jr were born there.
My grand father worked as a driver ( for Michelin of course !)
They left for good in 1925 .
About Me:- Tell us about yourself
I am a retired teacher of English.
I visited Milltown in March 2009 .Bruce (?) Schwendeman kindly took us round the lovely museum.
What is your interest in Milltown history?
I am interested in English-speaking countries in general.
All my grandmother's brothers and sisters (8 altogether) lived in Milltown.
I am doing some research into my family history and emigration from my native village Roudouallec that provided so many hands for MTC and the USA.
I can assist you in your search perhaps, as my French family Grandmother was from Roudouallec and Grandfather from Guiscriff in Brittany. my grandfather guillaume LE GOFF was a tyremaker for Michelin in Milltown. I am the dual national daughter of famille LE GOFF and reside in Metuchen, NJ. I have French and American ciyizenship owing to my family history.
