Hi Richard, thanks for your quick response time for our merge for Reau-30.

I have been researching my husband's ancestor, Dominic Roe, for a few years and I'm wondering if they are the same person. Could you take a look at Roe-2744 and see if you think he is the same as Reau-30? I would appreciate your opinion. This is my first foray into French-Canadian research and I'm a bit uncertain with the names and all.

Thank you!

Hello Katie,

Yes, I'm quite sure they are the same (Reau-30 and Roe-2744} and that they should be merged.

I edited Edward Roe. Added 1850 census and Civil War template. You can click on the Civil War link on the bottom of his profile.

posted by Richard Van Wasshnova
Excellent. I will start the merge, then. Thank you for the work on Edward's profile. :)
Thank you so much for adding me to the family! The work you have done on here is amazing.

Hi Richard. I disagree with the Robidoux spelling with the X dropped. All our family spellings are with an X. Possibly the name has been incorrectly entered into some records.

thanks Richard, somebody is confused about the use of categories, she is definitely not old enough to be a fille du roi.  :D left her a message.

hi Richard,

can you tell me which Fille du roi has wrong privacy level please? Existing lists don't show it that I can see. Thanks.

Hi - Kamphaus-6 should be set now. Let me know if you find any others that you need access to!

Hi Cousin Richard, you can research your distant ancestors by checking the 30 generations in common. Read the message from my cousin John on my page for a way to check if you are related to Charlemagne. You may have a different route to the Plantagenet ancestry but the premise of reaching back beyond the 30 generations works the same. Hope this is helpful.
