    His mother is choreographer Thérèse Thoreux, according to Wikipedia in French.

    Also, i think i found the genealogy of Thomas’ paternal great-grandparents, but i’m not really sure, and i hope Joseph John Boyce didn’t do anything here

      i see you added the genealogy here, but Leon Bankhalter Bangalter couldn’t be his paternal grandfather, since he died 4 years before his father Daniel was born, so he was probaby Thomas’s paternal uncle-grandfather unless his year of death is false
