When I brought Andre Simon in, he was Simon as that's what my mother had researched and I confirmed that later, but when I tried to find him family on WikiTree, I ran into name problems as many of his family was already on with Simoneaux as the last name. And then there's the Simoneaux and Simoneau.... I disconnected Elizabeth, poor orphan and took the Reine off. Thanks for the alert.

Just to complicate things, in the course of editing another entry, a source (Charles Samson, of LA) informed me:

"For Acadian Genealogy, you should refer to Stephen White's Dictionaire Genealogique des Familles Acadiennes as an excellent source. He lists the siblings of Jeanne Martin.... and Marie was not known as Marie Reine (and she married Andre Simon, not Simoneaux); Rene did not have a middle initial (St. Jean Baptiste de Port Royal was in Nova Scotia, not NB); and there was no Elizabeth."

There seems to be no documentation for Elizabeth, so I propose to delete her?

Marie is 20 degrees from Tanya Lowry, 16 degrees from Charles Tiffany and 17 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
