I have been away from my geneology for quite a while but my cousin who explored the AUBUT name quite a bit has sent me all her info.
My understanding is that every AUBUT in Canada and the US all hail from the same one man who moved to Canada from france.I don't have any of my geneology stuff even loaded onto my new computer - but I did meet someone online once (an AUBUT) from Canada.His ggggrandmother and my ggggrandmother were sisters.
I love going backwards, but I love even better coming forwards and see who you are related to who is still around.
The original AUBUT name in France in the 1400's was spelled differently.I don't remember how off the top of my head.It has gone thru a number of transformations before it ended up on my birth certificate!
Be well, Betty
Geneology = disturbing the dead and irritating the living!
