I spent the better part of half a year researching my Belgian ancestors. I got pretty good at figuring out both the French and Dutch records. This ancestor threw me a little though, since both father and son have the same name. Also, I know very little about his life
Charles Louis Tavernier (Sr.) is one of at least three children of Joseph Tavernier and Barbe Wanters. He was born 17 June 1833 in Grotenberge, East Flanders, Belgium.
On 3 March 1862 he married Adelle Joseph Leblon in Montignies-sur-Sambre, Hainaut, Belgium. Together they had 4 children.
He died, probably after 1900, but I haven't yet found his death record.
