Extracted by Kelly Townsend (neé Patenaude), a transplanted New Englander, is a third generation Franco-American who began her interest in genealogy 2 years ago. Kelly began collecting Patenaude names thus creating a huge database which can be found on her website (http://meltingpot.fortunecity.com/virginia/670/). Being a registered nurse and having more than 16 years experience reading physician's handwriting has qualified her to read the census records with little difficulty deciphering the text. Through this interest in genealogy she has discovered two wonderful Québecois cousins Jean and André Girouard who have been a great help with the translation of the occupation listings found in the various censuses. Kelly works in a hospital emergency room in San Antonio, Texas.
