Thanks, someone will doubtless make use of it. All of the "Savoy" ancestry has been discredited from my Boudreau branches, so the point is now moot for me. I found that the "new" work being done has thrown out all the problem areas for my Boudreaux and associated families. I originally had the Pitre lineage, among others, and they were the ones so difficult to research. I'm finding similar problems all over, as I research deeper into my four grandparents, only one of which is French Canadian. The "old" research often proves problematic, but sadly people just copy each other, and if the first gets it wrong they all do. I've done my share of copying, and been accused of using other's "work" ( as if any of this is a truly original creation, out of thin air as it were )but it's the only way to get started, and the really sloppy work soon shows its head - it doesn't hang together, it doesn't make sense, and is mostly full of wishful thinking instead of common sense.
I still think Scavois is far likelier than Savoy in this instance.
