This book by Guy Boulianne is a collection of texts written and published on his website between the months of June 2016 and January 2017. It follows the first volume that introduced the reader to his personal quest, both spiritual and historical. From mysterious France to the origins of his family, the reader could then follow him in his discoveries which he shared without any restraint.
In this new book, the author focuses on explaining the origins of his ancestors. From the Viscount of Nîmes Ursus to militia Captain Jean-Marc de Bouillanne, to Judge Paul Boyer de Bouillane, he traces the course of history and manages to link dates, places and events to make everything coherent.
He now wishes to go further by using Y-DNA analysis, followed by autosomal DNA analysis, to demonstrate whether or not the Bouillanne family is blood — bound to the Planta and Planta de Wildenberg families. In fact, the two families lived in the same regions, where the Dauphiné was in France and Switzerland, they participated in the Assembly of Vizille in 1788, which foreshadowed the French Revolution, and they own the same piece of furniture on their respective coats of Arms, The Bear's Paw. DNA genealogist Jean-Pierre Gendreau-Hétu wrote to him : « I hope this experiment will succeed! You could succeed in establishing one of the oldest Y-DNA signatures in France known to date! »
"Know thyself" is the precept that is engraved at the entrance of the temple of Delphi. Tirelessly, Guy Boulianne continues his quest for the Grail that will reveal to him the secrets buried under the veils of time. The author invites you to follow him on this yarn of Ariadne.
