In Memory of the Hale Siblings

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;  Love leaves a memory no one can steal ~ Irish Tombstone



I sincerely hope you will find someone of "interest" here. I have tried to be as accurate as possible but mistakes can and do happen.  Should you notice an error,  please send an email and it will be corrected.  Some of my research has been taken from various sources, the internet included, and has not been verified.  All direct ancestors of Jean George Larbalestier are correct, according to research done by the Société Jersiaise.   Feel free to use whatever data you find here, and I urge you to do your own research for verification.  Let's all do our part to help eliminate the myriad of false information so readily copied and re-copied.  And remember, what is recorded on various documents isn't always the truth! 

DO NOT USE MY PHOTOGRAPHS AND/OR THE PERSONAL STORIES WITHOUT MY CONSENT - I OWN THEM.  Please be a considerate genealogist, ask first.  If I find you have used them without my consent, you will be added to my Wall of Shame, full details included, then prosecuted.

This research is on-going, so please check back frequently to see what is new.  Remember to refresh your browser to see the latest additions.

An enormous debt of gratitude is owed to Ken Larbalestier of Australia, who so willingly shared his Jersey Island Larbalestier research.
