This series of Early French Canadian Pioneer 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. All these posts are intended as Finding Aides – a place to find possible clues and start your own research!

I can not find much on them at all. I’ve been at this for 5 years now.. And now hoping to dig alot deeper. I’ve viewed all the surnames listed on this site and can’t really find any matches. So maybe the myth of my Grandparents has been solved. But any help or good direction would help. I tried Ancestry .ca. But nothing at all.. Thank for any reply or information… Continue reading
