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 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 descended from the Allains of Quebec. My great-great grandfather was Heliodore Allain and his son Benoit was my great grandfather. Benoit’s son Philbert was my grandfather and my Dad was Norman. I am interested in locating the place in Quebec where Heliodore and Benoit lived in. Philbert eventually settled in Northern Ontario and later moved to the US but I never knew him growing up so had no info from him.
