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. I have a family member named Xaintes Dupont b. abt 1595. She was married to Zacharie Cloutier I, born. about 1590. I believe they may have still been in France. Their son, Zacharie Cloutier II, Married Madeleine Emard April 4, 1648. Their daughter Genevieve Cloutier b. 1655 was married in C, Quebec, Canada to Joseph Guyon
    The line goes further in the future.
    I’m wondering if Xaintes Dupont and Zacharie Cloutier I, are the same couple married July 18 1616
