I am amazed I don't even have a connection by marriage. Most of us early Quebecois descendants are related.

I too am related to the Guyon family of French Canada. Who knew that these famous people are our distant cousins!

As a descendant of Jean Guyon, I discovered many years ago that Celine Dion was my distant cousin.  However, I had no idea that all those other people were distant cousins as well.   The surname Dion is apparently a corruption of the surname Guyon (they sound very similar, especially the French pronunciations).  Dion became a "dit name" for Guyon.

Not a «dit» name. It is more likely due to the old French pronounciation written by sound by priests as the «Guy» part was pronounced as the letter «G» understood as «D». Illeteracy did not allow to correct it .
