I was thinking it would be great idea to create a genealogy page where I could invite people to contribute and I was very happy to find it already exists!  As an introduction I will cut and paste text from genealogy.com:

My ancestory includes:Pierre Payet dit St. Amour - he came to New France in the 1600s as a corporal in the French army.He had 14 children with Louise Tessier.Perhaps there would have been more if he wasn't captured and held for 3 years by the Iriquois.Francois Cottu De La Valtrie -The first COTTU to the New World who also came in the 1600s.The COTTU (Coutu) line are descendants of CHARLEMAGNE through the marriage of Jeanne de Roucy to Francois Cottu on Jan 25, 1583.Some (REALLY) distant cousins:Francois Payette - a very successful voyageurs (i.e., fur trapper) who helped settle the Pacific Northwest in the early to mid 1800s.A city, river and National Forest were named after him.Louis Riel - the leader of the Metis Rebellion.He was also good friends with my gg-uncle Pierre Henri Coutu.Other names I am following:HILDEBRANDT - Cleveland, Ohio, SCHRITZ - Cleveland, Ohio and Gostigen, Luxembourg, CONKLIN - New Jersey, New York (to Revolutionary war), DULIN - New Jersey, Washington DC (to Revolutionary war)DOBSON - Toronto and TILTON - NJ (Quakers kicked out of Long Island and settled in NJ).

I'm looking forward to collaborating!
