Looking for info on a invention done around 1870/1880.

I dont have to much info to go on, but it was possibly to do with telecommunications.

Charles Giquel, was the guy behind the invention

There must be records kept of inventions/trade marks/patents etc, but whom looks after this?

Any suggestions as to whom i can contact?

Hello Bobby,

Why not contact your local library or the National Library? They should have access to electronic information and digital archives that might help. I've had a quick look via Google and got the impression that this name comes from France, and a bit more precise from Bretagne where most of the Franco-Mauritians came from back in the old days...

Good luck!

Mme. Tortue (this name derives from the bell on my bicycle which looks like a turtle, and the kids in our neighbourhood decided this was my new name...)
