Recent and not-so Recent, but interesting, Stuff:
Benoît Pelletier Shoja has sent us his recently revised biography of Nicolas Peltier, Benoît's pioneer ancestor. Click on the link above to read this definitive biography of the earliest Pelletier to emigrate from France.
I recently received and read "Pelletier Chronicles - 500 Years" by Lonnie Pelletier. It is an interesting and entertaining blend of fantasy and fact about his ancestors in the Guillaume lineage.
