The refs suggest he was known as Emmanuel SatuSuro 03:59, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Translated from French Wikipedia[edit]

I translated the Jacques Félix Emmanuel Hamelin article.

It could use some cleaning up and rewording, but there was a good deal of detail and lots of useable facts in the French version. I also added a few bits of information from articles linked to in the French version as they were pertinent.

Maybe but we are going to have to get a handle on what he was known as - the refs I have come across suggest the Jacques Felix were not commonly used - and now we have baron - we need a standardisation sooner than later - Emmanuel Hamelin, Baron Hamelin or what> SatuSuro 14:25, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
I've seen both Emmanuel Hamelin and Emanuel Hamelin (with one 'm') commonly used. It seems his full and correct name is Jacques Félix Emmanuel Hamelin, so I reckon it'd be best to leave the article title as it is (which also then stays in synch with the fr wikipedia article) and use redirects as needed. I've created two redirects as above. I'm inclined to refer to him in articles as "Baron [[Jacques Félix Emmanuel Hamelin|Emmanuel Hamelin]]", which appears as Baron Emmanuel Hamelin. -- I@n 15:01, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Looks like good reasoning to me - but when referring specifically to his activities on the west coast prior to his elevation - the Emmanuel Hamelin master of the Naturaliste would seem appropriate oui? :) SatuSuro 15:08, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Definitely oui. More needed though - diversion to timor, dirk hartogs plate, encounter bay, port jackson. -- I@n 16:06, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Organization looks much better now :) ♥ FaerieInGrey 22:16, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, beware: the French article is mostly a copy-paste from Biographie des célébrités militaires des armées de terre et de mer de 1789 à 1850, published in 1852. It tends to be more lyrical than bothered by facts. It is good, but to be taken with a grain of salt. Rama (talk) 11:23, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
