      The Dubois family has many charts online (5 pages worth) tracing their linage to the abt.1070, including Crusaders. I have not had time to verify this line yet, but will, as I have other lines that intersect in the 1100’s! Just started working on Dubois after visiting in New Platz last month – while at the fort/graveyard, I told my daughter I remembered some of these names in one of my branches! She laughed, as it is over 25,000 ancestors. But after teaching almost 40 years, a strong memory can be a good thing! Glad to have another cousin! Sharon Lynn Arnold
