A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

Theriault m. Fortin | Evelyn in Montreal

Eugene Croteau of Massachusetts (USA) is a descendant (through his maternal line) of Lambert Theriault and Domitille Fortin who were from  St-Modeste (Riviere-du-Loup) Quebec. M. Croteau  left a message in one of the comment boxes saying that his family is  “taking a trip to Canada in the spring and are trying to find relatives”. Eugene descends from this couple through their son Wilfred Theriault who married Regina Lavoie probably in the States.

I’m including some of his genealogy below. If you are connected to any of these Riviere-du-Loup Theriault s, M. Croteau would love to hear from you! You can leave a comment below and I will put you in touch with him.
