Dear,
As the great-great-great-great-great grandson of Mériadec Count Ruffo de Bonneval, Chief of Division at Toulon, I am very interested by your website. Also such a big work demands some points of remarks or corrections, at least concerning my ancestor... Among others, the birth date is 1741, not 1744. I think it would be preferable if I send a common e-mail, or do you find this present way is best convenient to you?
Don't hesitate to get back to me in any case; many thanks.
Best regards,
Diego Ruffo de La Fare - Bonneval
