Also known to me is that there are a lot of people with the name Lauret in France. Up to now, I have not been able to link them to my name. There are also a number of families in South America with the name original name of Lauret, but over the years it changed to Laurett. Most of them are descendants of Dutch immigrants, which left Zeeland in the 1700's. and 1800's.

Lauret Information

A lot of info has been handed to me by family, and a lot has been gleaned from archives and other sources. There are letters and numbers next to the “source”. Those are codes I have used as to where I got the information.

As for the "Laurcode", I have given all the persons a letter/number code. Each letter contained can be used to trace back one father at a time. For example; Petrus is the first known Lauret. His son Joannes gets the code -P. The son of Joannes, Petrus, gets the code -PJ while his son Laurentius gets -PJP.
As I had originally started my family from Laurentius (Born: 12-03-*1744), I have started off from the sons of Petrus (-PJP). From that time on there are family with the startingcode of L(Laurentius) and G(Guidonis).

For instance, my code is LPLCHG.
That means son of G(abriel) H(ermanus) C(onstantinus) L(aurens) P(etrus) L
(aurentius), the letters working in a reverse manner. So the closer the similarity to this code, the closer the family tie.
I am sure that there is a better way of numbering, but I get all confused by those numbers.

I also have a lot of Deceased Cards and ads from papers, as well as a lot of photocopies from the original archives. One day I might add those as a link to this document.

All that remain is to wish you, the reader, a lot of luck and success.

Should you like a translation into English of anything in Dutch, please let me know, and I will see what I can do.
