Hello Jim - although our family tree appears to have branched long ago, we share ancestors in Michel Larche Hache dit Gallant/Anne Cormier. I you descended through Francois (b.1707), and my line follows through his brother Jacques (b.1712).
I have an very comprehensive geneaology from Michel through about 1850. I would be happy to share it. I didn't compile it, but found it online at a very active message board. Please let me know if you are interested.
I would like to correspond with you (or anyone else!) about how the family became so far flung. Although my father's roots are deep in Nova Scotia, I grew up in Alberta in the west and am becoming very interested in this history. I am quite a beginner in terms of geneaology, but am learning through doing.
Like you, I will include a skeleton lineage:
