Hi Lucie, found your site by just poking around CMA2014. Looks like you're a quite involved young lady! I'll have to spend more time looking at what you have. My name is Gary David, born and raised in Haverhill but left for Maine in 1976. My mother was a Belliveau who's father came from Grosses Coques, NS. I missed the reunion of 2004 but hope to make the 2014 up in Madawaska. I grew up in a french neighborhood with many Melanson's, Leblancs & Comeaus ..... and many others! Wonderful site, keep up the good work! Love Genealogy!

Hi Tanya,

Thank you for your message. I think that if you review your connection, you will find you are closer than a 17th generation grandfather ;)

Happy hunting!
