Lineage of Joseph Albert Laval Theriault of the Sayabec Therriaults

An enquiry from Rene Swan (Theriault)

” On my father’s side I am French, Irish and Mí’kmaq. I am also certain I have family in St. John’s Newfoundland and even went on souljourn there. I may get vertigo on a swing, but I ran to the sea and my sail from North Sydney Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques Newfoundland was wonderful and familiar to me, as was the return sail homeward bound to my Dear Lorraine! … So for a multitude of reasions, I celebrate that I am a Theriault.

I’m known in the music industry as René Swan, and have been since I was 15. By the way, on my mother’s side, it is documented that my third great uncle was Danish children’s author, Hans Christian Andersen. Question: Can you explore the possibility of any connection between Nicole (Theriault, the singer) and I and or any other relatives I may have out there?

  1. Thank You for working on this so diligently for me Evelyn. You have been a wonderful help! You’re very good at researching genealogy! Our ancestors history is a powerful and poigant story of a people who have struggled and fought against mans inhumanity against man. Yet, we Acadians are a strong and passionate people, with a love for life! And our survival is the proof of that! I will never forget the price our ancestors paid for honour.And for that, and so much more- I honour them…
