William Chiasson, Caraquet N.B. | Evelyn in Montreal

Jessica Morneau said:

I’ve been trying to find information about the Chiasson side of my family tree for days, and then I finally came across this site. I was just wondering if anyone had information about William Chiasson and his wife, I think it was Jillette; they would have been born somewhere in the 1800’s and I believe they lived in Caraquet N.B. If anyone has information about these people and any information going farther back then that I would really appreciate it. Continue reading

Lacroix m. Beaudoin | Evelyn in Montreal

Reader Query

My name is Melissa LaCroix and live in Massachusetts. I am researching my family LaCroix. As you can imagine its a bit confusing knowing which person you are related to. Especially when I get into records in Canada, everything is in French and I don’t read or speak the language. I know that my Great Great Grandfather was Napoleon LaCroix (1871-1918 died in Quebec, Canada) and married Amanda Beaudoin. I have traced her line and she is related to the Nobleman Solon Beaudoin. Amanda moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts after Napoleon died to be with her children. Some of her children were Edgar LaCroix (my great grandfather), Sylvio, Philip, and Conrad. I know there are more siblings.

I was wondering if you might have more information on this branch of LaCroix? Any information would be so helpful

Thank you and I look forward hearing from you

Melissa LaCroix
