First my apologies (again) for the long posting hiatus. Other responsibilities have taken priority.
Not only have I not posted, I have not kept up with the email I have received, nor with the genealogical data correspondents have sent me. Hopefully I will catch up with my emails soon and begin posting more frequently.
I particularly want to acknowledge the correspondence from Donald Scott on the early (Huguenot) Blanchettes and various other Blanchette connections, from Leonore Wilde on the Dubois, Gardener and Blanchette connections, from Liz Chater ( http://www.chater-genealogy.com/) on the Armenian connections, Danny Blanchette, Betty Bowden and several other Blanchette descendants on the many Blanchette connections, and Bruce Walker on the Roberts connections. I will incorporate your data in various posts as soon as I can.
