NotesThis is my greatgrandfather. Details are taken from a book by his son Jan, 'Jules Persyn 1878-1933'. In the book, however, the family moves on to the Netherlands in September 1915. The register records in the Rijksarchief in Brussels shed another light on this part of the family history as the return happened in two parts, first the family and two weeks later Jules himself.
