The Deveaus | Pioneer Families of Caraquet

Index: Pioneer Families of Caraquet

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. For additional information including precise dates and following generations, please leave your questions in a comment box below.

Index: Headstones of St-Constant Cemetery

This is a selection of some of the older headstones of the Cimetière de Saint-Constant which is located not too far from where I live in Chateauguay on Montreal’s South Shore. The images will be appearing once weekly on Sundays.

I haven’t photographed all the headstones but if anyone need a particular one then I can go back and get it. Just drop me a line in the comment boxes below.

Acadian & French-Canadian Genealogy and History

 


This is one of a series of posts organized under the heading Evelyn in Montreal where I chronicle some of the work I have done with other family historians and genealogists. Some information is original to this site but some has previously appeared at Genforum, Rootsweb and other genealogy boards. I am reproducing them here as those boards are closing down in order to preserve my connections with those family researchers.
