I have very little info regarding my paternal grandfather other than his family came from Eastern Canada, and his name was Vaughn Vela Pelletier. I'm wondering if he had family that went south into NY. His part of the family traveled to SE Michigan. My mother just passed away Sept 2010, and she didn't share too much family information with me. I am looking to find other family from my tree so as not to be 'family-less' now that the one constant in my life has passed. I believe he was of French and German heritage?
