  1. Hello,

    This is a great website!!
    My gggrandfather moved to Grande-Anse in the early 1800’s. He was Hilarion Albert. I have been comparing some of the Theriault info with my files. Also all the other Acadian families from the area.
    I have been playing with the 1861 and 1871 census of Grande-Anse and getting the maiden names of the wives on it. Also trying to figure out how the Acadian names were spelled. Some were put down very badly.
    Some of my family went to Lot 1,3,4 PEI and Campbellton NB area.
    I have been putting info in my files for about 21 years, it’s almost 47,000 now.
    If anyone would like to exchange info, that would be great!

    Good Hunting John R. Albert

  2. Thank you for the informative site. My mother I have worked on the Therriault family for years. We share the same lineage from Jehan Therriault to Joseph T andAngelique Landry. My family then decends from their son Joseph Teriau and Madelien Thibodeau down through decendants Benoni Theriau, Remi Therriault SR, and Remi Therriault Jr who came to Montana with three sisters and his wife Mary Caecorie Lizotte. Many of our family records come from ST. Basile, Riviere-Ouelle and Quebec City including the lineages of Peltier, Lizotte, Cyr, GauthierMarquis etc. Remi and Caesorie were in Maine on the 1880 census and them recorded the death of a 10 month old child in FRenchtown Mt. in Nov/1881. I will research your site more thoroughly. Please let me know of any inquiries you may have.

  3. Dear Evelyn,
    In case you haven’t seen this, I thought you might find it interesting. The April 9th, 2011 issue of The Economist contains a reference to the Theriault family. It’s on page 4 of their special report on pensions. A very small blurb, but very interesting: “The most siblings to reach pension age, 7 sons and 12 daughters born to Eugene and Alica Theriault in Canada between 1920 and 1941. They were all claiming a government pension in 2007, with their ages ranging from 66 to 87.”

  5. I love all this information on our family. My grandfather is Melvin Theriault. I have been looking all over the web for information on our family history. I have come across different websites which have different family crest do you know if our family actually has a crest or not. I love the work you have done. Hope to hear back soon.

  6. I’ve been very much enjoying this website. My great grandmother is our family link to the Theriault family. She was Claudia Theriault, married to Joseph Brown in 1903 in Manchester, NH. I’m interested in finding out who my contemporary cousins are from her family. I have been tracing back the Theriault and Soucy families and am quite impressed at the size of the family and the historical significance, and would like to know if anyone from Jean Baptiste and Adele Theriault’s family can share any details about Claudia. We speak primarily English, but am able to get help with French translations. We do know that Claudia and Joseph were married in Manchester at Ste.Marie’s Church. I have gone to this church to confirm the records and have seen the house where they lived. Her sister, Leona, married Joseph’s brother, David Brown, and they lived on the same street. If you can connect me with living family members I would greatly appreciate it, as I am the one in the Brown family conducting the search. Some of us have friends and acquaintances with the Theriault name but it would be wonderful to connect with actual family members.

    • Thank you for reaching out, Cheryl, it’s always great to hear from Theriaults far and wide!

      Note pour mes lecteurs francophones – si vous voulez laisser des messages en francais – ou bien communiquer directement avec Cheryl – vous pouvez laisser un message ici ou bien me contacter directement (evelynth at videotron dot ca) et je vais transmettre votre message.
      Cheryl voudrait entrer en contact avec des personnes vivants qui ont des connections avec la linee Jean Baptiste and Adele Theriaul, ou bien avec Caludia Theriault qui s’est marie avec Joseph Brown en 1903 a Manchester au New Hampshire aux Etats Unis.

      Cheryl ne parle pas francais mais je peux vous aider et en plus elle est capable de se faire traduire des message elle meme.

      Merci

    • Hello Cheryl, I don’t know if you will be notified by this message but I would like to communicate with you. As you may know, Claudia was Adèle Soucy’s daughter. Adèle is my 3rd great aunt. She was the sister of J.-Ernest Soucy who married Olive Pépin in 1889. It looks like we are related!

  7. I have stumbled on something precious with this site. Iam a descendant of the ‘de Vautour’ family later changed to Vautour who ended settled in New Brunswick. I can still speak Acadian French and it was my first and only language until I was nine years of age. I recently wrote a book on my memories of the family going back to when they came from France. I was able to find old photos 1800’s to the present day and in total was able to give good account of how my ancestors lives. Thank you for sharing what you have, mine was printed in book form to share with family. Maybe, I should go with your example and share with everyone like you are doing. I go by the name Angie but my Baptismal name is Evangeline.

  8. Jean Baptiste & Adele Soucy are my great grandparents. Their son Ulderic is my grandfather, my mother’s father. I would love to swap information. My line is Jehan, Claude, Germain, Claude, Paul, Jacques Jean, Jean Jacques, Thomas, Jean Baptiste & Uldric.

    Comment by Deborah Wilson | May 15, 2015 | Reply

    • Deborah, my great great grands are jean Baptiste and Adele! Ulderic is the sibling of Claudia, who is my great grandmother. This puts you in my father’s gen. I would love to chat offline. My research shows a lot more siblings in that generation. Please feel free to reply, I have a lot of stuff compiled that I’d love to share, particularly about dad, Jean Baptiste, Mom, Adele, and then the children. I have a count of 22, with most verified. Please, let’s talk soon. I’d love to meet another cousin! From Cheryl Brown.
