    • You are very welcome! I have a lot more coming and it’s a very tedious job so I always like to know when people appreciate it.
      If you have any surnames you’re particularly interested in, drop me a line and I’ll see if I have them 🙂

      • Hello Evelyn, my late husband was a Bruneau, a Metis from Alberta whose ancestors are out of Quebecs’ early settlers from France. I have his complete family genealogy if anyone wants more information. Donna-Rae Paquette
