This series of Early French Canadian Pioneers 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. All these posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

  1. Hi I was wondering if you would have anything Métisse or even native for my great grandma Cecile Martineau married to Moise Clement. Her Mother was Albina Boucher and father was Israel Martineau and even higher up was Philomène Payet Dit St Amour and Father was Louis Boucher. My grandpa Leo son of Cecile says that his grandma Albina was from the band Kitchi Sipi and we are Algonquin and from the Mattawa/Ottawa River and Environs living near Maniwaki Québec. And Albina always spoke either creed or Ojibwa and my grandpa Leo could not understand his own grandmother.
