This series of Early French Canadian Pioneers of Quebec microposts is dedicated to the earliest settlers of Quebec. If you are new to the genealogy of French-speaking Canadians, please be aware that the earliest French settlers can also descend from the Acadian pioneers who originally settled in what are now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In addition, please note that ANY Native related links refer back to other posts citing census, marriage or other documents with indigenous or Metis individuals of that surname, however those individuals do not necessarily descend from those particular French Canadian settlers. The posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

  1. My ancestors. Charles and Pasquiere Lefevbre had Zacharie in 1664 who married Elizabeth Roy. They in turn had Marie in 1698 who married Joseph Nadeau. Daughter Louise was born in 1729 and married Francois Lebreque. Does anyone know if the line intermarried with native?

    Turgeon, Nadeau, Lebreque, Roy, Boudrot, Senesac, Granger, Dupuis, Clouatre, and Menard in this line.

    I see the Algonquin line from Couc >Menard> Renaudet> Brouillet> Dupuis. Wondering if any others exist.
    Willing to share information. Lynn

  3. Any idea if this is the same line that goes down to Loius Turgeon of Fort Frances, Ontario in early 1900s? I’m trying to finish my grandpa’s work one day and trace our tree.
