The Michelets were an odd sidetrack into my own ancestry. The link I'd been looking for turned out to be wrong. I'm leaving the Michelet ancestry on the site, however.

Jacob Post Michelet and Bergithe Elise Chattrine Daae were part of a major false trail side-track I made before correctly establishing my direct ancestral connections. I still believe my great-great-grandmother's name came from them, being, "Jacobine Bergitta Michelet". But Jacob Post Michelet and Bergithe Daae do not appear to have had any children, and therefore turned out to be a Michelet dead-end, but I've left in Bergithe Daae's extensive ancestry into the Muntes, Von Munthes, Daaes, and Findes because it's quite interesting even though they turned out to be distant 'cousins' rather than ancestors. The bulk of this ancestry, which is gratefully acknowledged, comes without revision from http://genealogy.munthe.net. Please visit this site for further info, history, and quite a few pictures.
