      Hi there---

      I have not uploaded onto the sites you mention, but will look into them now. I'll also send you an invite to your ancestry username so that you can see my tree here on ancestry.

      Yes, I am descended from the Russells/Roussels of upstate NY/Quebec. I used to spend my summers in Franklin County, NY visiting my grandfather Ramon William Russell Sr. He was the editor of the Malone Evening Telegram for many years.

      Once you receive the invite, have a look at my tree and let me know what you think. My sense is that the earliest generations of Roussels were Jesuits that came over from Normandy and gradually worked their way down toward NY (staying very close to Indian reservations, oddly).
