Hi John, My name is Elaine Vandale-Towns. My Great Grandmother was G.Poitras, married to E. Vandale. Winnepeg is the place beside his name.Sorry about the initials, but thats all I have. I don't know how many kids they had , but a son Etienne Vandale was my Grampa.My info says that G. Poitras was a pure breed.Its not much but I hope it helps. I'm trying to establish geneology to get my Metis card. If this goes anywhere please let me know. Thanx, John and good luck.
