Suzette Granger


   I was born in 1943 in east Algeria, in Djidjelli (Jijel), the fourth generation born on the other side of the Mediterranean.
My great-great-grandfather arrived in 1855.
Since 1955 I have been living in the Gard, a county in the south of France, where I work as a physiotherapist in a rehabilitation-centre in Nīmes.
Being passionately interested in history and genealogy, I specialised naturally in the history of Algerian families.
In the following pages, I'll try to share my research work with you, as well as my discoveries and my favorites.
For over fithteen yars now, I've been my data on computer and I have authorisations for that
from the National Council of Data Processing and Freedom. Every time I finish a list,
I enter it into the corresponding archives and especially the Overseas Archives of Aix-en-Provence.
