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!

  1. Hello! Thankyou for your research and this awesome website but I have a few questions….Where can I find more info on Marguerite Langlois’s true origins? There is so much conflicting data on her birth and her stated birth parents appear to be French. Was she a native adopted by this french couple whrn they arrived in Quebec and just assumed their surname? The surname is confusing too….Langloise doesnt its derivation translate to English? She is my 9th GGrandmother. Just trying to learn more. Thankyou! My email is koliopee@gmail.com
