Guide to The Pitre Trail from Acadia

 

 

As the website has grown it has become more layered.  So as an aide memoire I have added this table of contents.  You can reach every page from these headings, if needed, as you follow the Trail.  Some pages may be listed more than once as they can be reached from more than one location.

             This section is a work in progress.  I will be placing online my direct line ancestry.  You can access

             both paternal and maternal lines from the home page frame on the left hand side.  The names of each

             of my direct line ancestors are listed on the appropriate page instead of here because of its length.

             Also added is my husband's branch.
