I guess they don't post the private e-mail addresses of senders--I was going to try to send you one. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. I would like to discuss with you and introduce you to others who have info--I am relatively new to the game. Your messages sounds like you have the Ensign newspaper article (which I have just seen). Many stories don't have the facts quite straight. Although there are a number that claim we are descendants of Christopher, there is yet to be much proof. His legal heirs died off several generations after he did and his estates and titles were awarded to his family in Genoa. The original Columbus came to New France in the mid-1660's and settled on Isle de Orleans in the St. Lawrence just below Quebec City. We have genealogy to his parents. Send me a private e-mail and I will send you more info.
