Bio update April 12, 2021
This update is due to receiving arrogant, snobbish, ignorant, disrespectful, abusive, harassing, and threatening junk mail on FAG and my regular e-mail address. I will be reporting inappropriate messages in the future.
Anyone wishing to use the photos, in their genealogy, that I have posted on this website are free to use them. HOWEVER, please note where the photo came from and note me as the contributor.
I post most photos to both FIND-A-GRAVE and my ANCESTRY family tree - Merrickville Wilson families. Some people have been copying my photos and re-posting them in their own ANCESTRY tree, with no credit to me. The photos can be saved directly from my family tree. Please do not use FIND-A-GRAVE to ask me questions about my ancestry and related families. See my family tree which contains over 43,000 individuals.
Some of my direct family ANCESTORS include the following:
I am a descendant of Louis HÉBERT, 1575-1627, and Marie ROLLET, 1588-1649, my 11th great-grandparents, who were the first family to settle in (New France), Québec, 1617.
