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

  1. Thank you, merci, pour ce site. I am re-learning french so that I may visit and respect the québécois desire to sustain the language. My personal connections so far are through two geneological veins of daughters of the king: Ouellette was my mother’s maiden name; it has been traced to Anne and René, but also through the Thibodeau surname, which I am currently working on.
