A cousin of an ancestor had at least five children, and all got married.
So, I have her on her own marriage record (Catholic parish register) as
Melina Tassé

In censuses, and birth/marriage records of her children, I have not seen
the originals. The LDS indexes to all of those have her names
as:

Minnie Groleau
Milnis Groleau
Millie Thesor
Millie Thesser
Alwina Tessey
Mathideé Jassé
Malina Johnson
Unknown
Molina Tousseau
Melina Cassey
Molina Lousseau

I've noticed lately that the paranoid fear of computers becoming
intelligent and taking over the world has almost entirely disappeared
from the common culture. Near as I can tell, this coincides with
the release of MS-DOS.

I've run across a number of those also.

I receive GENMTD via email using Thunderbird 12.0.1 and Tahoma font.

Wes, I do not now how you communicate with GENMTD, via email or newsgroup,
what program/service you use, or what font you compose in and considering that
some messages to GENMTD are filtered through linkpendium, somewhere the codes
alt 0195 and alt 0169 are being substituted for the last character/s of Melina
Tass? and Matilde? Jass? as seen above.
