I (S. Gadbois) acquired the gadbois.org domain in 2001 when a Gadbois from the USA showed interest in building a web presence for the Gadbois families of North America. I was initially to develop the website. In the meantime the individual passed, the site was never officially ordered and I kept the domain name since then along with others I was using before (e.g., MacScience.net, hosted sites elsewhere, etc.).
Both gadbois.org and simon.gadbois.org are a bit of a proof of concept as they were entirely created from (mulit)markdown and processed by Marked and uploaded as static files.
