Sounds very interesting.My sister and I just spoke about all of this a few days ago. We're (sister, brother, and I) all working, slowly I might add, on various angles of our ancestry. My sister has traced our father's side of the family back to Jean.She's still working on our mother's side.There is one missing link.Our mother was a Fradette.My father was a Fradet.If you wish to send me the info, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. This way we can avoid the public forum.
We're also interested in finding out if Jean may have had a sibling or other relative left in France.If so,it would be interesting to see how the two sides of the family evolved on separate continents.
