Reader Valerie St.John noticed my post about the St.Simon & St.Jude Cemetery in Grande Anse, New Brunswick and asked me this question: I am trying to get information on my paternal grandparens. They came to Niagara Fallfs, N.Y.about 1928. They are from Grande Anse N.B. Their nmes are William Godin and Valerie Pinot? Do you have any information on these families?
