This is the Family Tree information that I have. There is rumor that one of the Audette's married a BlackFoot Indian. I sent the family tree to an organization in Montana to research, but never heard back from them.

I'm thinking maybe a road trip to Canada is on my list of places to go.
In 1990, our family drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls, and North thru Canada to Sault St. Marie and then down into Wisconsin. We circled the Great Lakes, we may have gone through some areas where my ancestors farmed.
