Looking for Batise/Batisse families from Nipissing Ontario

We are researching the Michel Batist & Jeannie McDougal genealogy from Nipissing, Ontario
We have many questions about the Batise/Twain line. Many of the names have changed over the years & we need some help to try to straighten them out.
We know that Michel had a brother William & a sister. [we don't have her name]. We believs he also had a sister Anne. Some of the families they married into are: the Cobby/Wincikaby, Pierce, Wejobo, Micmac, Mckenzie, & Commando.
If anyone could help steer us in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Looking for Furlotte/ Firlotte/ Ferlotte/ Ferlatte/ Furloughts anywhere

We have been researching the Furlotte line for the last 24 years.
Our records start in France about 1679 and our last entry was Feb 2016 We have information on about 12,000 people.
We have exchanged information with many people, but still have many "holes" to fill. The family has lived in Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and all over the United States, as well as France.
The name has been spelled many different ways: Frelat, Frelatte, Ferlatte, Ferlat, Ferlot, Ferlotte, Firlotte, Firlot, Furlot, Furlotte, & Furlought

We are also interested in any old family stories, or pictures. It would be great to be able to put a face to the people in our tree.

Any help would be appreciated. Maybe we could help you out also.
