Yay! I've been keeping an eye on the category hoping to see a French sounding name pop up (I got my hopes up with Toussaint but it turned out to be from the Netherlands). Finally, hope of finding my connection! :)

Love the blog post!
Fantastic!  What other nationalities and locales can we connect?
Well from Lianne, we can connect to me, and I'm married to a Brazilian so there's a Brazilian connection if we didn't have one before...
Also if you go through me you get English, Scottish, and Swedish connections!

Unrelated to me, I was working on a family that led me to an immigrant to the US from the Netherlands:

Interestingly, I found another connection of my family to the Risings/Raizennes through Joseph Kent (My grandmother's uncle was a Kent, and a pretty important one - but that's the subject of another post). I find that I myself am only 19 steps away from Josiah Rising/Raizenne.  That makes me only 39 steps away from Lianne. 


This looks like a line that's pretty scant on WikiTree, so it may take me a while to put together the profiles to make the connection, but I will work on it.
