STEPHEN WHITE CHANGES: As a result of Stephen White’s recently released information, at least one of the ancestral lines published in our reunion genealogy book is under question. In fact we have 31 different members with the ancestral line under question. This particular line is Antoine, then Martin, then Francois Louis and on down to the member. According to Stephen White’s information, there is no such person as Francois Louis. There is a Francois, son of Martin, married to Madeleine Hebert. Then there is a Louis, son of Jean, married to Cecile Michel. Therefore, if we are to assume that Cecile Michel is the right wife, then we have to go with Louis, who is the son of Jean. So the ancestral line should be: Antoine-Jean-Louis instead of Antoine-Martin-Francois-Louis.
