Hi Carol; Noticed that you were going to Montreal in May. You might want to check out this web site. It is a web site dedicated to descendants of the Urbain Tessier dit Lavine Famille. www.genealogy.org/famille/tessierditlavigne
The president of this association I believe is in Montreal or Quebec. You should check out the plaque in front of the Bank when your there. I am also a descendant of Urbain Tessier.
