Thanks for your response. I have much information about the Lebels - there are actually quite a few of them in my line. I know that one of my Ouellette ancestors, Christine Ouellet(te) had a mother named Marie - Salomee Lebel. I have her parents' names, too. Where are your Lebels from? It is possible that our lines cross, and that we are related somehow. If you want me to e - mail you part of a database I received on my ancestry, let me know. Do you have any Ouellettes in your family tree? That is my last name. My grandmother, Rita Beaupre's father Amedee has many ancestors that are Lebels, and so this is where I found this name. I have info that goes way back to 1053 or so. My Canadian ancestors are from Kamouraska, and some from Acadia, Nova Scotia, and my French ancestors were from Paris, and Normandy, particularly Rouen. Let me know if you need more info - I'dbe happy to e - mail you more, if you would like.
