Is Jean Nicolet Your Ancestor?

Good question.

But who is Jean Nicolet? A famous French movie star…

Jean Gabin

a great French chef,

a well-known French blogger?


None of the above.


It just  happened that I found out Sunday morning that Jean Nicolet is one of my ancestors. Of course I knew who he was since my childhood when I was sitting in my classroom in the first grade.

Or was it in the second grade?

Or surely in the fifth grade…

Anyway it does not matter when I heard that name for the first time. 

Fifty some years later I stumbled by pure chance on that name.



I believe Jean Nicolet was somewhat of a comedian…
