    My maternal g, g. g grandmother allegedly was Reine Ursule Gamache who married Joseph Gaudreau . Their daughter Marie Reine married Joseph Simoneau in 1804. Their child is Julie Simoneau who married Jean Adam, 1837. Their daughter Blandine Adam Lemieux is my maternal grandmother. I cannot go beyone Reine Ursule to do my matrilineal ine. Any ideas or consideration would be appreciated.
    Thank you so very much. I a second generation US…all others on both sides are French either Quebecoise or Acadie.
