Reader Query: Bourdeau, Riel, Yelle

Reader Query:

I noticed that you have Bourdeau, Riel & Yelle listed names. I’ve been trying to trace my Grandfather’s family back and have run into a wall. My Grandfather went by the name Fred Burdo. On my Grandfather’s application for Social Security it he states that he was born in what looks like “Crisatom”, Chateauguay, Province of Quebec Canada in 1885. His Father is named as Dave and his mother as Belinda Riel. However on his death certificate, his mother’s name is stated as Blondi Yelle. His name could have been Bourdeau and might have been changed to Burdo when he came to the states in the mid 19th Century. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks Continue reading

Reader Query: John Stacey of Caughnawaga – family connections?

Lise asked:

(comment box under Jean Baptiste Karontarirhon Stacey & Rosine Rice of Caughnawaga (4/4) | Overview)

My third great-grand-mother was Mary Ann Stacey. She was born on June 24th 1784. She married Joseph Lecuyer on May 31st 1808. Her father was John Stacey who passed away February 11th 1813. He was married to Marie Louise Ann Daudelin who passed away on April 2nd 1788. This was all in Caughnawaga. Apparently, John Stacey had 14 children. I’m wondering if this is the same Stacey family. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Lise Continue reading
