Roch Theriault, for those fortunate enough to have not yet heard of him, easily makes the short list for the most evil humans to ever walk the face of Planet Earth. He's now connected to the Tree.

(Seriously though, reading his Wikipedia page is NOT for the faint of heart. While Wikitree has many Black Sheep, few are as blackhearted as Roch was.)

Oh goodie, he's my 9th cousin. I think I'll skip the wiki page, thanks for taking one for the team.
To paraphrase the late, great Carrie Fisher: "If only there was a way to fumigate one's DNA."

To put it in perspective, I'd take my chances with Charlie Manson's 'Family' before coming within spitting distance of Roch Theriault's cult.
mine too...but that will be the case with anyone with Acadian heritage... we are all related!
He's my fifth cousin, a closer relation to me than Jack Kerouac! Eek!

No wonder his profile is orphaned.
Since Jack Kerouac is also somewhere on my list, I had to check. Sara Thibault, you and I appear to be 9th cousins... you, me, and Roch all share the same common ancestor, Louis Prinseau. You, uh, haven't, uh, committed any murders recently, right?
Hello cousin! No, can't say I have killed anyone lately, and I'm reasonably confident that none of my close relatives have, either. One can never be too certain, however...

I only mentioned Jack Kerouac because how unfair is it that I'm a closer relation to Roch than Jack?! Incidentally, I'm 9th cousins 1x removed from Justin Trudeau, but when I did the comparison I connected through the same family line as I did through Roch -- common ancestor Pierre Miville.

Ahhhhh... what does it all mean? :D
