♦Mod on Genealogy and Family History.SE

I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

Algeria was the closest colony to France. Some French hoped of it ultimately becoming a part of France (as opposed to just a colony).
