    • Hello! I’m planning my vacation on Jersey this August. My great-grandfather’s sister, Henrietta Goertz, married a man named Henry Snowman and moved from Germany to Jersey. I was told their son emigrated to Canada, but contact was lost. I’ve been trying to find a way to get in touch with Patricia Boyle, we might be related. Would you kindly forward this? Thank you so much. Best regards, Karen Kupczyk

  4. Just stumbled across your posting and spotted this postcard with a map of Jersey. Ironically we have just come back from a week there. A lovely island and it was lovely to see images of a past Jersey. Thanks for sharing.

  5. For the attention of Evelyn Yvonne Theriault

    My name is Bill Williams, a private individual who has written a manuscript about the career of one Harry Vardon. Vardon was a champion golfer who was born on the island of Jersey, Channel Islands.

    I am seeking permission from your good selves to use the image :”Luces from Jersey, (Channel Islands) to Canada”. Your map illustration is particularly interesting because of its age and the fact it shows towns and regions of the island. Vardon was born in Grouville Common in 1870.

    Would you kindly respond to me at the email address below at your earliest convenience.

    Best Regards
    Bill
