  1. Hi; I have a Mitchel and a LeClair in my extended family tree. Sandy Mitchel was in Lathbury in the 1911 Census – I went hunting Lathbury and arrived here. Before that he and Minnie were in Mulgrave and Derry, Labelle Quebec. Sandy married “Minnie” Souciss (many other variations of that name too). On one Census I have Iroquois and her Chippawa.
    Is this the kind of info you have in this database? I also have Laforce.

    What a find. I will certainly revisit your site and have a better look. Thank you for sharing.
