So I found a page that has my dna fro my 23 and me account. For some reason it connects me to my grandfathers uncle arlien instead of simon as my great grandfather. This may just be a mistake I'll check into it as soon as I get to my grandmas and look at some paper work. However from there is takes the simoneaux on this page back to the 1500's. As soon as i get a weekend I'll make sure if it was simon or arlien that is my great grandfather. But anyway I'll post the link which dna links me to the simoneauxs family tree as soon as I get a free weekend. This tree is very extended of what I was able to come across.

Hi Mildred, Damian and I are working on some of the Simoneau profiles as we try to connect him to the big tree. If you have any questions, you know where to find me. : )
