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. The posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

  1. I am a descendant of Pierre-Edme Duval. My name is Jim Duval, now living just outside of Vancouver, B.C. My great grandfather was Louis Joseph Napoleon Duval. He was born on Aug. 16, 1849 in L’Acadie, Quebec. I have quite a bit of info on Pierre-Edme Duval’s parents going back to 1650. I went to Tonnerre, France trying to get documents on their birth’s and marriage, but was unsuccessful. I could sure use a bit of help regarding getting documents from Quebec or France.
