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.

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

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada.

Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series – Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames of Eastern Canada – Marriage Records  – contains many of the same surnames as well as others. Continue reading
