have you been in touc h with Sylvia Binhc- Talma? she is compilling a list of all Talma's from around the world.
She has a reference to Berthe Talma born 1883 in Seychelles (ATTACHED)
while i am not related to that Talma, i may be indirectly related to Charlette Zoe who supposedly had a brother (Victor, my great- great-great-great-great grandfather) and sister Laurencia Flippenta Zoe
Yes, Alfred Labroche and Charlette Hyppolite were the parents of Marie Labroche.
I wasn't able to find any information on Marie at the Archives in Victoria, wether or not she re married or had any children.
My great grandfather, Charles Vel married again in London in 1903.
There was another Charles Vel who arrived in the UK around the same time as him, he was also from Seychelles.
I have often wondered if he might be the son of my g-grandfather from his marriiage to Marie Labroche, as his birthdate 1873 corresponds to the year they were married. I also have some letters to my g-grandfather from his nephew in Seychelles that has a reference to my g-grandfathers son Charles ?
