Hi Rebecca,

My name is Chester Wallace and I am the grandson of Chester Baudoin, who was sheriff of St. Mary Parish, Louisiana from 1964 to 1984. If this is the same Jessie Voisin....he was a Morgan City Councilman who endorsed my grandfather in his last election in 1980. I have a newspaper clipping of them shaking hands. Don't know if this would help or not.

Dear Sir/Madame: my mother's maiden name was NABORS and longstanding thought has been that what happened was a particular French Hugenot (a religion that had undergone repeated persecution in France) by the name of VOISIN migrated to the New World and changed his name to NEIGHBOURS upon arrival - get this - in the late 1600s. I petitioned to have the NABORS surname project created at Family Tree DNA and have been it's only administrator. Just a few years ago, I requested that Family Tree DNA create the VOISIN surname project and they did.

I would like to get a few more VOISINs take the Y-DNA test at my own expense. Very simply:
a) I buy the kit, have it shipped to your "snail mail" address;
b) you scrape the inside of your cheeks (so no blood test, no body cavity exams (chuckle), no needles, no doctor appointment, etc, etc, and etc);
c) we all wait for 3 to 5 weeks;
d) results are posted on their website; only YOU will have access to that kit's account at Family Tree DNA;
e) you then JOIN the VOISIN surname project at no expense of any kind. The intent here is to establish a DNA 'profile' or 'pattern' or 'signature' for the VOISIN surname.

The objective is to establish the VOISIN DNA signature, compare it to that of the NABORS (DNA signature), and thereby confirm, or reject, that long-standing thought.

Please contact me here:

a) my USER name = DannyBoy1951
b) my TREE name = FlanaganNabors7
c) my BIRTH name = Dan Flanagan

Thanks and I hope to hear from you again,
Dan Flanagan
