Hi to everyone. My name is Alexander Henry Patnode II. I was born in Connecticut, USA, and currently live there. I am just beginning to research my family tree. I must say I was surprised to find so much interest, (on the net), in the Patnode family. My great great grandfather, Charles Patenaude, was born in Quebec, in 1819. He was married to Zoe Rocheleau. That's as far back as I can confirm. I'd like to hear from others who could help me understand our history.
