Hi Ronald,

Thanks for replying back. To answer your questions:

1. I have been researching the Frenette family for seven years myself (seems like a lot work sometimes but I don't give up) and i stumbled upon Frenette site one day while doing an internet search for my great-grandfather's name. As you said, I soon noticed that the site took my back Pierre Fernet & Gabrielle Eustache so I was already aware of them. (Point of interest that you may not know: Pierre & Gabrielle married in 1600. Pierre was born in 1576 and he died in August 1629, while Gabrielle was born in 1580 and she died in 1621).

2. You and I are related. We are seventh cousins twice removed and our common ancestor is Michel Fernet, born on January 1, 1636, died on November 17, 1717. You descend from his son Pierre whereas I descend from his son Michel Frenet, born on April 23, 1692, died on September 7, 1751.

One more follow up question: I am currently working on putting as much of our family tree into a brand new complete revamped up-to-date website. With that being said, my question is: Would you mind if I included some pictures from your branch? I am planning to use a website photo album to help history "come to life" visually. If you would like pictures in your branch, please e-mail them to With any pictures you may send, please provide captions telling me who each person is so as I know where to place them.
