These micro posts present the first generation of each of the families that established different surnames found in Caraquet, New Brunswick. Most of the information is drawn from Fidele Theriault’s genealogical dictionary “Les Familles de Caraquet”. His book is in French and offers a lot more information including family trees of the first generations (with precise dates)  and in many cases explanations of how the first pioneers arrived in Caraquet and other fascinating anecdotes. If you don’t have access to the book you can contact me for extra information by leaving a comment underneath this post.

  1. Zacharie Doiron and Madeleine Thibodeau are on my husbands tree which I am working on. Where can I find actual documents which will prove these people are in fact Aboriginal (Mi’kmaq, Metic etc.) Any help with this would be much appreciated.
