The compilation of this site was from the Family History book published in 2000. It follows therefore that I must reiterate my thanks to all involved in the book and now in the site.
Firstly acknowledgement go to the pioneers, my Great Grandfather Henri Volcy Giblot du Cray , who
conducted the original research on the
family history and to my uncle Emilien Volcy Giblot Ducray,
who continued with the research, without which the compilation of this site
would not have been possible.
To Michael Ducray, who now lives in New Zealand, was responsible for digitalising the original data base. He is now custodian of the ancient documents referred to.
sincere thanks go to my wife Anne, for all her hard work in translating, transcribing, proof reading. Without her help neither the book nor this site could have been have formulated.
also thank Richard Yardley, for permitting me to use
some of his ideas.
Thanks go to my cousin Sue Luzy’s for her encouragement
and direction, as a librarian. Her continued research in France, writings and
translations of the original documents made the book and this site more meaningful. Her assistance is invaluable and really appreciated.
