The Real French Ancestry of J.K. Rowling
Very interesting genealogy research by Kimberly Powell: "When I initially researched the French ancestry of author J.K. Rowling, I began with the man that she identified as her maternal great-grandfather, Louis Volant, a Legion d'honneur recipient. This World War One hero was also discussed in depth in this UK Telegraph article in February 2009. While I have yet to receive confirmation on the exact source of this information, it appears to have been a story passed down through the family, and I had no reason to doubt it (my first mistake!)."
