History of a specific Street name..

Beitragvon Bobby » So Okt 28, 2007 12:12

Looking for info on a specific street name in Mauritius.

'Giquel Street', why was it named this.

I believe its named after Charles Giquel, apperently he invented something. But thats as much as i know.

Which government department can i contact regarding street names?

Charles was born in France but moved to Mauritius and Married an english woman. Charles died in 1886.

So, any suggestions as to whom i can contact regading info on Giquel Street?

Hi Bobby,

When I did a search on the web, the only thing I could find was the location of the street is in Eau-Coulee, Curepipe.

I think street names are assigned by municipalities for towns and district councils for villages.

Since the town we're talking about is Curepipe, you can start by contacting the municipality.

Here is the municipality website, try contacting them - perhaps their library and information services department!

Municipality of Curepipe Webpage

Hope this helps...sorry couldn't be much of a help...I ain't in Mauritius at the moment or else I would have queried personally...

Best regards

There seems to be only one valid email address on the website, and thats for the 'Citizens Advice Officer'.

Anyway i sent one to that person, in the hope that she'll forward it to the correct department.

The email address on the homepage bounces back.

Bobby,

I'm not sure that they'll get back to you (our system is not really good)

If this is urgent, I would advise you to phone directly

Thanks for that.

I'm still searching for info on this street.

I've had no luck on the email.....

As a last resort i will probably have to phone. Its not urgent, but its something thats is important for my family history.

If anyone has a book 'this' book, as i'm not in mauritius, a look-up would be great.
