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 these particular French Canadian settlers. All these posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

    • Hello Judy!
      Thanks for leaving this comment – you are doing a great service to other people with the pieces of information that you leave.
      I am not sure whether your Delaronde is related to the Larondes. Do you know the founding couple of that line?

  3. This is a query prompted by the below:
    “hi i am the grt grandaughter of pierre atawenrate b 1814 he was a chief of kahnawake in 1845 his father was angus awennaietha rice b 1784 my grandfather was iasrael rice b 1870 my dad was arthur rice b1910 m y name is judy rice toffoli if you could e mail me at rgta@shaw.ca regarding marriage information thks”
    (I receive an undeliverable notice when I try the rgta[at]shaw.ca address — 2018:IV:20)
    I am a descendant of Pierre McGregor & Marie-Joseph K. Research beyond Pierre has not yielded success to date. I would like to contact the McGregor cousins of our era to learn as much as I can about Pierre. Regarding Fabriault’s bk at the LOC. The book was misfiled when I tried to call for it the penultimate time. A later visit & a very helpful and resourceful library aid brought all the shelf to my reading desk & it was determined that the call nbr in the catalog was not the same as on the spine of the book.
    In any case, anyone wanting to use that collection ought to understand it is only a list of marriages. If you lack a spouses name you may be able to find it but beyond that there is not much there.
    pls use nothingleft[at]tutanota.com to contatc me
