    Bienvenue. We are so happy to have a French member of our website! Did all of your grandmother's brothers and sisters return to France after Michelin closed their factory in Milltown?

    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.
