If anyone is still watching this thread, Im a 5th gen Michaud in the Fort Collins Area.
I am the son of Greg and Patricia, Greg is the son of Paul and Bernice, Paul is the son of Joseph and Rosalla, Joseph was the son of William and Cellena, who I understand is the cousin of the Frank you are working on.
I have just started assembling a family tree and I would love to add whatever information you have. Ill be happy to fill you in on whatever I know from my branch of the family. I have quite a bit going back to William and Cellena.
