I have started work on my LABOYTEAUX Homepage. It was my hope to have a
little more done before announcing the site, but I have been unable to
finish posting some things to it as I was hoping at this time due to other
family commitments. However, I did want you to be aware of its existence,
and to let you know as time permits I will be adding information to it. You
may wish to bookmark it as a favorite.
At the present I have hyperlinked URLs of our LABOYTEAUX Gen-Connect
Bulletin Boards to our homepage for easier access.
If you also wish to post to the Gen-Connect Bulletin Boards, go to my site
listed below and click on the appropriate Bulletin Board and follow
directions that will appear for posting. There is also a Query Bulletin
Board there, so by posting the same query to both the LABOYTEAUX Discussion
List and the LABOYTEAUX Query Bulletin Board you will get full coverage.

researchers, I would be grateful for your insights. I think things like

estate on Grace's behalf.
More recently, Arlene has discovered through a pension file that my "branch"
of Laboyteaux 's are directly related to this woman. ... my grandmother was
