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. My maternal grandfather, also named Pierre Marcoux, a descendent from Pierre Marcoux and Marthe de Rainville in Beauport, Quebec. I would like to know about our family crest. There are Marcouxs and there are Marcouxs.
    Census sheets tell so little about families. Is there some direction I can go to learn more about my grandfather’s early life as he died before I was born. I did not know my mother, (his daughter) as I was adopted. But I did find four of my siblings who were able to give me some information on our mother and grandfather’s later life.
