Laura, What is your Billy connecting line to France? I have also traced my line back to France - through Marie Madeleine de Billy (b. 3/29/1717) who m. Louis Brule. The deBilly line connects to other family lines that connect to French and English royalty, through Eleanor of Aquitaine. The deBilly family has been traced back 1000 years. Also,if you'd like to read an interesting story re the Billy family (Jean-Francois, in particular) I have a recommendation: "Our French Canadian Ancestors" volume VIII, pages 82 through 91. The over 30 volumes of "Our French Canadian Ancestors" were written by Jacques Saintonge and the English translation was done by LaForest. Most genealogy libraries have these volumes. I believe they can also be purchased on but each volume costs about $20. I was able to get some of the volumes through the inter-library loan service.
