I am a 15 year old, high school student living at Petit de Grat, situated
on the south coast of Isle Madame. I attend I.M.D.H (Isle Madame District
High) and it's my first year. It's great, I have lots of new friends and
the new teachers are really nice.
I am fairly
new to genealogy. I've only been collecting since August of 1997, but I
have a large amount of people put together. I hope to put up more families
of Isle Madame in the future.
I have begun putting together
some families from Isle Madame, of which I am a descendant even though
I am a descendant of pretty much all of them, just like everyone else here.
These pages are not yet completed and I will add any additional information
as soon as I get a chance. Please, feel free to
write me if you see any errors
or if you can add anything new. My sources are posted below each
Here are the pages I've
written so far:
