This is a series of micro posts about the pioneers of Shippagan in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. Each post is organized around initial information from Msg. Donat Robichaud’s Le Grand Chipagan: Histoire de Shippagan, supplemented with genealogical data from F. Theriault’s Les Families de Caraquet and is now being gradually enriched with information from other sources. These are mostly French-language sources and some aren’t easily available, so if you need more information please leave your questions in a comment box below  🙂

  1. I am a Paquette. Descendent of Pierre Pasquier, father of Marie Paquet (une femme du roi). My grandfather was Stanislas Paquette. I will have to take a look at our family bible for the names of my great grandparents.
