A new Comeau-Como Family Album has been added to the Photo Gallery on our site.

Spelling of the Comeau name was changed to Como for some families. One family who went by the name of Como was that of Capt Sylvine Como who was a sea-captain and later operator of the Como Hotel in Joggins, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia.

The majority of the Comeau\Como’s that are on our site are descendants of Joseph Comeau (b.1724) and his wives, Anne Aucoin and Madeleine Hebert.

Results of a recent Y-DNA test done on a patrilineal descendant  of Jesse Strang has confirmed a previous test results and proved that Jesse Strang is not a patrilineal descendant of the Strang family of Westchester County, New York.  Although we may never know, the Y-DNA results indicates that a member of the Tompkins family of Westchester County, New York is likely Jesse’s father.  I also strongly believe that Jesse’s mother was Mary Strang, daughter of Daniel Strang and Elizabeth Galpin and brother of Daniel Strang the recruiter, who later married Jacob Silliker.

More details on the Y-DNA test results, our analysis and conclusions can be found at Jesse Strang DNA.
