Philippe DESTROISMAISON changed his name adding the "dit Picard" after he was in Canada. You may have information that I need as I have struck a dead end in the early 19th century. The family split at some point through marriage. Any info would be most welcome. John Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
