Hello Sheila,

Thank-you for adding records to some French Canadians in my tree. Very nice of you to add research. Sincerely, Gail

Thank you, Gail. It turns out your Rochettes (Rochet in some cases) are distantly related to me. You write on many of these profiles "records in my research." Please don't hesitate to post your sources! Sheila B

Bonjour Sheila,

Charles Paradis, n est pas le fils de Jean Baptiste Aram Paradis. Le fils de Jean Baptiste Aram Paradis est Alfred Paradis, ouvrier de bois. Se sont mes arrières grand pères. Et à ma connaissance Alfred est fils unique. Je n ai jamais pu voir s il avait des frères et sœurs.

Hello Sheila! Saying Hi, as a 6th cousin :D. I've been trying to work and sift through my Québécois history like you mention, however there's so many different gedcom data bits, and trees, an other sites! Do you suppose we could work together on this? I'm stuck at my great great grandparents here;

I'm hoping you may have, or know of additional resources to figure these out :). Have a great evening!

Bonjous cousin Ethan! I've sent you several messages this morning from profiles for Hilaire Lévêque and his wife Victoire Souci.

Let's chat via Zoom this week if possible and let me know how I can help further.

Hi Sheila: Thanks for connecting Marie Gendron to this family. I now see that she is almost certainly a duplicate of Gendron-684 whom I created a few years back. I don't recall if your Marie came up as a possible duplicate at that time or not. I am sure this family had 22 children and we currently have them at 23, so I am sure this is the duplicate. I see we are 7th. cousins. Cheers. Jim LaBossiere

Always happy to meet another cousin, Jim!

Hi! Thanks for updating Chayer-24. I just checked, and changes in WikiTree mean this person is no longer an ancestor of my late husband, so I've orphaned the profile. Letting you know, in case she's an ancestor of yours & you'd like to adopt the profile.

Cheers, Liz

Problem with the descendents of Zachariah Foote and Rhoda Harris. Information comes from Yarmouth Nova Scotia Genealogies written by George S Brown. My interest Hannah Foote 1793 – 1877 daughter of Zachariah Foote 2nd, and Rhoda Harris, married John Peters 1794 – 1884, of Briar Island NS. Your Wikitree profile of this family shows no parents or descendents of this couple. Is this information incorrect? Thank you for your time, Michael Bailey

Thanks for your revision to Mary Anne Amiot! Sue

Hello Sheila, you posted wonderful information. My grandmother wrote her family tree from information in the family Bible, but only their names.

You've also added generations to the Fortin tree and updated information in the Caron tree. My Caron family settled in Worcester, MA ca 1900. My Frappier family settled in Worcester, MA 1902, they lived in Lowell, MA ca 1870's. Gail

Hi Sheila: I see we are 7C-1R, so Hi cousin. Thanks for the corrections about godparents. My French is weak and it's been so long ago that I studied it, I have forgotten a lot of the basic rules. Hope you and all of your family are well and safe. Doing fine on Vancouver Island. Best wishes, Jim L.

Hi cousin back to you. We are all well here, and hope you are too, on Vancouver Island. We live about 25 miles NW of Boston, Massachusetts.

A bien tot!

Hi, Sheila! I want to merge those Laplante profiles. The problem is I get an error when I try to do so. The other person's last name needs to be changed as it causes an error in Wikitree.

Edit: I think I figured it out and proposed a merge for him and the father.
