Family Album

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.

Agnès was born in Noumea, New Caledonia, in 1976

The Gagnon-Dahl family in Quebec, April 2018


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.
