      Phil, was in 3rd & 4th grades at American school between 55 & 57. Mrs. Lavergne was one teacher I remember. She had a daughter, Hillary. My family lived on Rue De Gaulle, later Cong Ly. Am 63 now. Sorry, but do not remember you. What grades were you in?

    Yes, has been long time since Baltimore. How are you doing? Didn’t I send you pictures of Saigon? Need more?

    Hi. I’m looking for anyone who might remember a French lady called Marie-Claude Stein who was at 278 Gal de Gaulle in the 40s 0r 50s. Would the Gal have been a gallery? She had a private library of books all in the same binding, some of which I have and I’d be interested in knowing more about her. The books ended up in Carlisle, UK!

    • Sue – Gal de Gaulle translates to General De Gaulle. There was a street in Saigon named Rue de Gaulle which was named after Gen. De Gaulle. It could be in the 40s and early 50s some people living in Saigon referred to it as Gal de Gaulle.

      There is a listing on Google for a *Stein, Marie Claude* at 18 r Fontaine de Lattes 34000 MONTPELLIER, in France. Says she is 34 years old. So doubt it would be the same lady, but could be a relative maybe.

      Do you have any additional information to go on? What are the books about?
