One of the most precious things in a family is the family photo album,
showing family members and important events in a family over several
generations. My family
photo page introduces the members of my family. This page is more of an
historical record of the different generations of my family down
through the years, and is arranged chronologically. I shall add to it
as I have the opportunity to scan old pictures. See also My Life in Pictures.

My wedding with Martine Caillard was celebrated in Luxembourg in March 1975.
One of the more precious and unusual presents from Martine's
grandmother Madelaine de Moor was a lithograph portrait of the famous
German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, autographed by him and presented to their ancestor and famous Belgian scientist Adolf Quetelet.

Martine is the decendent through her mother of a distinguished family
of Belgian scientists and artists. One ancestor, François-Antoine
CURTET, 1763-1830, was born in the village of Chaumont
just across the valley from my chalet in Haute Savoie, France, became a
doctor in Napoleon's armies, was stationed in Brussels at a military
hospital, stayed to establish the medical school in Brussels, with a
distinguished medical and scientific career.

Curtet's daughter married Adolfe QUETELET, 1796-1874, the famous
Belgian scientist and founder of the science of statistics. Martine's
grandmother, who was Quetelet's great granddaughter, gave us as a
wedding present a portrait of the famous German scientist and
naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, autographed by him and given to Adolphe Quetelet.
