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

  2. Hi there! I am interested in finding any possible link of the Amyot family and the Amo family, which originated in Quebec. Adolphus Amo, b.1849 in New York and residing in Hogansburg, NY on the Mohawk Indian Reservation with his wife, Ellen, is the first ancestor that can be pinpointed for sure with the last name Amo. His mother’s name is Catherine Gauthier, b. abt 1817 in Quebec and his father may have been Jean Baptiste Amond. It is at this point in the family line where we are hitting a wall and would appreciate any insight you may have into where the Amyot family line settled and what the surname may have become. If you could provide me with some information, my email address is cassandramccarthy@yahoo.com . Thanks very much for all of your assistance!
