Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
This message is for those interested friends who I was unable to contact privately. It's been a number of years since many of us corresponded and I understand how email carriers can change. If this is a duplicate I hope you'll understand.
Mynew book about French families who eventually settled in the Mississippi Valleywill shortly be available in soft cover at Amazon or direct from the publisherat Colonial Roots.com. Anyone having an interest in the subject or in any ofthe families listed should find this book of interest. It would also make a wonderful gift for the holidays.
Theten French families treated in the book were all in the Mississippi valley bythe early seventeen hundreds. It discusses in turn the families of Jean BaptistCreely, Charles Bienvenue dit Delisle, Pierre Payant dit St. Onge, NicholasOuimet, Francois Tesson, Nicholas and Pierre Hubert, Gabriel Aubuchon, JeanBaptist Bequette, and the families of Noel and Michel Langlois. Each chapterbegins with the original location of the family in France and, whereappropriate, with the origin of their surname. It traces their move to America,tells some of their family history and what I known of their families anddescendants. Anappendix contains descendant charts for each of the families. Two additional appendicesprovide historical background about some members of the Langlois family. Thebook also contains numerous illustrations and a surname index. In all you willfind this book well worth the modest price of $40.00.
