Was very curious about your Gelinas lines, as my son-in-law is a Gelinas.Not sure if there might be some kind of connection.However, did a bit of research and remembered what I went through researching my own lines "Messier" and the "Gelinas" line.Both are french and both were butchered when they entered the United States.This was made so much worse when you consider that our ancestors probably spoke broken english.
