    • Notes 
      • The author believes from his mother, Diana Farmiloe, that Gemina's sister Lydia was the mother of Hector Cornez, who was the partner of Rebecca Descamps, the mother of Sarah ("Daisy") Fievet, the mother of Jacqueline Duby, the author's wife. The author also believes that Gemina's father, Jean Joseph Andry, was married to Rosalie Mariage who was Sarah Fievet's grandmother.

        According to Diana, Gémina may have met Josef Unternahrer when working at an hotel. She was a very good cook and learnt perhaps at an hotel. She remembered Josef's sister having said: "C'est les hotels qui ont ruiné mon frere". J

        osef was a journalist and according to family tradition an interpreter. He had weal lungs. It seems Gémina found him "in flagrante" with another woman at the hotel and left him. Gémina found work as a cook in Paris with a Protestant family called Fallot. When working, she had to leave her daughter Berthe all lone in her room. She later found a place for Berthe at a convent for Protestant nuns where she was well looked after. Gémina went to Switzerland when Josef was dying in order that a document be signed. It sems Josef said to Gémina: "je vous ai mal traité".
