My name is Dale Phillips-Tuivaga and I live in New Zealand. My grandfather was Ernest Duplantier. He was Gene's brother. We are very sad to hear of his passing. My brother Lance would have visited him before he died. It was very exciting for us that Lance made that connection as the brothers would not have seen each other for a very long time.

I am from the UK and have been trying to research the Duplantier family history. My father told me he had a cousin in Canada, with whom he was sometimes in touch it is such a shame that I could not correspond with him before he died as he almost certainly would have a lot of family information. My father was Norman John Duplantier, the son of John Fitzroy Duplantier who was the brother of Sydney Frank Duplantier who was, I believe Eugenes father. Sydney Frank was born, I think, in 1886 in London. I know very little about him except that he left for Canada in 1911 and then crosses from Canada to the US in 1919.
I'd love to here from you if you think that I am correct in thinking that Eugene was may fathers cousin. I am an only child and there are no more Duplantiers left in the UK.
