Ancestry and TFL

Post by mgluteus »

I am playing the mini-campaign 29, Let's Go! and the name of one of the town "Arthenay" was so familiar to me but I couldn't place why. Yesterday working on my family geneology, I find that it is the birthplace of one Marguerite Manchon who married Sebastian Provencher in 1663 in Canada they had a bunch of kids that eventually resulted in me!

Fascinating connection there Dick, it truly is a small world at times.
You'll need to tell us if finding the connection has any impact on how you play the campaign. :)

Outstanding pick up (you, that is, not necessarily Sebastian).

Squeaking as somebody else who now plays with platoons deeply connected to my family history, I can vouch that it does add an extra layer of personality to my games.

It did have an impact, I believe. It turned my game around (especially the die throws) I won the 2nd playing of the Flanking St Germain in a most crushing manner, committing only one Squad and a tank to essentially wipe out the Germans!!

Excellent, I'm sure Marguerite would be proud!
