Surname Lemont

by K Lemont

My husbands relatives came from the Alsace-Lorraine area. The story goes that they left this area and were French Huegonots around 1670 . They reappear in Londonderry for a few decades before immigrating to the US abt 1720. Where would I start my research?

Hi K,

Can you clarify a few things in case anyone has any info for you?

Your husband's ancestors were in Alsace (probably) where they were Huguenots?

or did they come to Alsace because they were Huguenots somewhere else?

Did they arrive in 1670 in Alsace or leave Alsace in 1670?

Just want to make sure ;)

I would imagine they might arrive in Alsace in 1670. If they were protestants, I would expect them to want to stay in Alsace for many reasons.

But people did all sorts of things and the facts are the facts!

Happy hunting,
