I know that somewhere down the line Two brothers changed their name. One was a Diotte, the other a Guillot. I beleive it had something to do with an argument. The Guillot brother moved around the Montreal area. The Diotte brother stayed somewhere around New Richmond, Qc. Would love to have more information.
This is what I have on the DIOTTE - GUILLOT Lineage. I hope there is someone that can help me figure this all out because I am confused.
I'll start with myself.
