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

  1. Thank you for the information. You helped me last year determine that I was related to the Monet dit Bellehumeur family. My 3rd great-grandfather was Michel Monet born in 1829. I am curious if you know anything about the Bonneau family. Michel Monet married Mary Bono. I believe that her father was either name John/Francis Bonneau. He was born approximately 1790 in Canada. I know that Michel Monet worked in the fur trade industry and my guess is that is how he met Bonneau’s daughter. My feeling is that John/Francis Bonneau was also in this type of industry. Do you have any suggestions on how to determine which Bonneau I might be related to? Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell via DNA information since, everyone seems to have the same names in their families. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Kimberly
