Hi Kelly, I think we have written before. It has been a long time. Did we ever find a connetion or not? My 3x Grandfather is Eustache Hamelin. Do you remember? Well anyway after reading your post I see you have made great progress!!And your line ends up connecting with Jacques Hamelin right? There is a site that I go to called the Metis Resource Center.They also have MCHRC Message boards.Lots of great history and active researchers. Thought you might find it helpful and just wanted to pass that site on to you.Have you found any family that took scrip? Hope to hear from you.Happy Hunting!Michelle LaFreniere nee Hamelin.
